So, is this a triumph of OCD, or something else?
Something came in the mail marked as Absent Voter Ballot.
My family's all applied for our absentee voter ballots. My mother was going to give this ballot application to a friend of hers...
I said she should make sure this ballot was valid first.
She called the township clerk and discovered that it was NOT valid. Any ballot application must say Absentee Voter Ballot.
FYI: Both my parents work local elections.
This application claimed to be from the MEA, and it could not have been, the real MEA would have offered a valid absentee ballot application to its members. How do I know that? Well, to start with, the MEA is for educators.
Welcome to defrauding the voters of America, 2012 edition.
Make sure you check when your ballot has to be in this year! Call your township clerk, ask friends, hit Google -- do whatever you need to do.
If you haven't registered to vote, please PLEASE go do it. Don't let yourself get cheated out of your vote. Voting is your right; exercise it!
