Again, read carefully.
No one stated that they do not offer static IPs. It was only suggested (in the comments, not the summary or the article) that it would be a waste of time if they didn't offer them.
I would agree that it would be a waste of time if they didn't offer static IPs for whatever reason. However, there's no indication whatsoever that they in fact do not offer them. I'd be surprised if they didn't.

This was also in the summary:

While they don't expect many homeowners to have a use for the $400/month 10 Gbps plan, they expect to have some business customers.

This service has been opened up for all residents, and by "residents", they mean residential as well as commercial. Please read the whole summary carefully before engaging in pedantic arguments. Hell, I'd even suggest reading the actual article; you never know what gems you'll find there.

I went to ASU back in the late 90's - early 00's, before they expanded and bought up apts. No one lived in the dorms after their freshman year then either. They just moved into the apartments that the university later bought. The experience was essentially the same, just much cheaper.

From your post (the post on which I commented):

I've never missed having static addressing on my home connection.

I was simply commenting on the fact that many businesses likely would want static addressing. Not all, but many. I don't doubt that you don't miss it on your residential connection. Most people wouldn't.

I have a better suggestion.
Next time you go to vote, do this. Then rinse and repeat, ten times within the hour, and see if it works. You're the one making the claim that it would, after all.
My bet is that it wouldn't work; you'd be recognized and fail at making much of a difference at all.
Which is why all this hype about voter fraud is such nonsense - it just doesn't happen enough to warrant the disenfranchising measures that so many (historically racist) states are instituting (many doing so the instant that the Fed. Govt. removed restrictions on them because of their racist actions in the past).
Good luck with your experiment, and let us all know how it goes!

We don't allow "everyone who walks into the polling place" to vote. If you've ever voted in the U.S., you would be aware of that. Either you've never voted before, which throws a wet blanket over your whole opinion about voting in general, or you have, and are therefore simply repeating falsehoods. I prefer to call it what it is: lying.
Registering to vote, at least in the state of NC, requires either a driver's license (or state ID) or a SSN. You don't just wander into a voting booth.

Insightful? Really, guys?
