County Misses Deadline to Send Ballots to Military Voters

In total, 11 California counties missed the April 21 deadline.

Update 4:30 p.m. Thursday, to include response from the county registrar's office. 

San Diego County missed sending seven ballots to military members by the April 21 deadline put forward by the Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act, according to California Watch.

Technical issues caused 13 ballots to miss the deadline, while more than 3,000 others went out on time, San Diego County Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler said.

Of the 13 missing ballots, seven were intended for members of the military living on American bases.

The other late ballots were for people living in Mexico who have postal boxes in the United States, a county spokesperson added. The Registrar office sent overnight ballots to all 13 with an account number for them to return their voted ballots by overnight mail at County expense.   

In total, 11 California counties missed the April 21 deadline, according to Califonia Watch.

This problem was made very clear in 2000... WHY ISN"T IT FIXED YET? All I can say is BOTH parties have completely failed to represent our troops. They have every right to be able to vote for their Commander in Chief, and we have every duty to ensure they can. Cmon Congress, DO YOUR DUTY!

I don't get the point of this article except finding any possible excuse to whine. They missed the deadline on less than one percent (.4%), so they took special measures to right their error... which was pointed out in the article. Let's move on!
