Absentee Votes Don't Count?!?!?!?

  1. WISH-TV - Indianapolis News and Weather - Parties Have 24 Hours to Submit Proposals on Absentee Ballots

    Okay, I am mad and not sure what to do about it! Hoping some of our more savvy members will have suggestions.....Roy??

    I have 10 hour clinicals on Tuesdays, election day was no different. Knowing I had to be at a clinical site at 7AM to 5PM, and that site is an hour each way from my house, like a good citizen, I filed to vote absentee, first time I have ever done so. I sent my ballot back WELL in advance, (2 weeks) of election day. Now, the local election board is saying *they* have to hand deliever each absentee ballot to the precinct it belongs in, and well, they just didnt get them there. SO NOW MY VOTE DOESN'T COUNT FOR ANYTHING?!?!?!?!?!???!

    People, I vote in EVERY election. I would not dream of missing one. I wholly believe our ancestors gave their lives for us to have this freedom and for me not to go is a slap in their face. Not to mention as a woman, we fought hard for the right to be counted, and by hell or high water I will be counted. I am not sure who to go to and where to start rattling cages. This is just totally unacceptable to me. WHY have an absentee process if it isnt going to be used???

    ANy ideas???

    Write Sue Landske, our state rep. Trust me, she will respond. My hubby complains to her often. She has even went as far as to gotten the correct people involved to correct the situation he was writing her about.
