Absentee Ballot Requests – A Cautionary Tale
Posted by Jim Walsh on Wednesday, September 15, 2010
My college daughter, who is now 18 and eager to vote for the first time, registered to vote this summer and requested online an absentee ballot for the primary election. After never hearing back from the Board of Elections, she called and was told that the Board had no record of her request. By this time it was too late for her to request an absentee ballot. For the general election, we will be sure to download the absentee ballot application and I will hand-deliver it to the Board of Elections.
