Internet To Help Refugees Vote

Associated Press

Trying to ensure the greatest possible turnout, the organization monitoring Bosnia’s upcoming elections is trying to track down thousands of Bosnian refugees around the world through the Internet.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe has called for Internet users worldwide who know Bosnian refugees to help them apply for an absentee ballot.

Applications must be submitted no later than July 31 to receive an absentee ballot.
