French newspaper on U.S. election

Thank you for including a French newspaper article about the presidential preference of most Mercer Island residents. My only regret is that their newspaper believes that Thonon’s sister city is in the Eastern United States (“Située a l’est des Etats-Unis”). For all the complaints that Europeans have about American ignorance of geography, one would think that they could at least place us in the correct half of the United States!
