I didn't know that rats could vote.
Amazon will ship mouse/rat poison to your front door.
The problem here (that critics aren't addressing) is that the poison is cumulative and devastating to the entire food chain. Predators eat poisoned rats etc, become poisoned themselves, die off, then the rodent population is left to REALLY explode. In the long term, it becomes like Chairman Mao's initiative to kill off millions of sparrows to save crops, which resulted in an explosion of crop eating insects far worse than whatever was done by the sparrows themselves.https://www.npr.org/2014/06/21/323970068/la-mountain-lion-a-poster-cat-for-californias-rat-poison-problem
