DanOTC: Looks like another significant bureaucratic hurtle between the poor voter and their ballot. But at least the Republicans will get updated mailing lists at taxpayer expense so they probably believe their new closed primary law has some redeeming social qualities…but be very afraid to open your mail box once they all know where you live. I would predict that the public will be even stronger in their demand for permanent absentee ballot status. One of our most frequent complaints at the elections office was why in the world did people have to fill that out every year…and that was with a much easier and simpler form.
Question: Anyone plan to check "unaffiliated" when you request your absentee ballot?
