Item: Additional postage has absentee voters licked: Post office admits ballots should not have been returned to citizens/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press
More Info: Absentee ballots across Kootenai County were returned to voters who tried to mail them back to the elections department recently after a postage snafu - even though post office rules regarding mailed votes say they should have been delivered anyway. Turns out, mailing back the two ballots on weight and size alone should cost 61 cents, not the standard 44 cents. Post office rules state that votes should be delivered anyway, as a way to ensure they are counted, post office staff said Wednesday.
Question: What do you make of this snafu?
