I thought it might help to share a definition of what exactly a "household" is. Copied from WWWebster, the Mirriam-Webster online dictionary: Main Entry: 1house*hold Pronunciation: 'haus-"hOld, 'hau-"sOld Function: noun Date: 14th century : those who dwell under the same roof and compose a family; also : a social unit comprised of those living together in the same dwelling. I take this to mean that a "household" is the group of people who currently cohabitate; it is not the house-structure. In fact, a single household might share many houses. Therefore empty houses would not count as households, especially those where occupants are not yet moved in, or are in the act of moving out. Extended absences probably should not be excepted, and in those cases a good proxy/mail ballot option might be the best choice. "TR" Thomas E. Ruddick, associate prof.
