Uh-oh: Updated (see bottom)

This does not bode well: Absentee voters report flaw
Sacramento County election officials said Monday that they have received dozens of complaints from residents who reported they were mailed incomplete or flawed absentee ballots.

After investigating, officials said Monday afternoon that the county will mail 40,000 potential absentee voters, telling them to recheck their ballots and informing them how to request a new ballot for the Nov. 7 election.
Absentee was supposed to be the safe way to vote. At least, it became the progressives' method of choice: "I'm gonna vote absentee!" we told ourselves and our friends. Well, like everything else that is in any way good, it seems the powers-that-be have deemed absentee voting too much of a threat. Once it's gone, we'll be pretty much screwed.

I guess the only way to get representation in government is to become a crooked lobbyist.

Update: More of the same! California is another Ohio, it seems.

We have our ballots. I'll have to see if ours are screwed up somehow.

I thought the one thing still safe was permanent absentee.

I may borrow this post - it should be of national importance (especially what they're screwing with in Yolo).

I always vote at the polls if I can. Makes me feel like an American.

You wonder where the "fix" will end, and the answer is when The American Taliban is removed from our Government.

This may be the way the Republican party holds on to Congress in November--shameless voter fraud.

*shaking head*

I agree with Laurie. Let's see...screwing with the absentee ballots and sending Spanish- language letters to immigrants threatening jail and/or deportation if they decide to cast a ballot...

This is not good.
