Have You Fought With Neighbors About Politics? Share Your Story.

You can’t choose your family. And you also can’t choose your neighbors.

This week, my colleague Jodi Kantor reported that an upside-down American flag — a symbol of the “Stop the Steal” movement that falsely contended the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald J. Trump — flew outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. in early 2021. Mr. Alito said his wife had put it up in response to “objectionable” signs displayed by their neighbors.

It’s a red flag of sorts that raises major questions about Justice Alito’s impartiality as the court was weighing whether to hear a case related to the 2020 election. But it’s also a story about a tale as old as the cul-de-sac: the intra-neighbor political dispute.

We want to know: Have you had a fight with your neighbors over politics? Have you fought over yard signs or what makes for an appropriate political display? What are the politics of dealing with the politics of your neighbors?

Please, spill. Tell us the details. We’ll reach out to a portion of responses to this questionnaire for possible inclusion in a future On Politics newsletter or story. We won’t publish any part of your submission without reaching out to you, verifying your information and hearing back from you. And we won’t share your contact information outside our newsroom or use it for any reason other than to get in touch with you.
