California Secretary of State Debra Bowen tweets:
Never got my vote-by-mail ballot for L.A. election, so I will be casting a provisional ballot.Bowen's first instinct is not to doubt election officials, but to doubt the mails:
I wouldn't blame the city - could be a post office problem, could be our mailroom or ? Investigate before blasting city!That'll build confidence in voting by mail!
Bowen later adds:
My POV: this is why we have provisional ballots. If a voter's ballot is missing s/he can still vote w/o risk of double voting.Good thing there's no risk of double voting! Posted by Stefan Sharkansky at March 03, 2009 11:19 PM | Email This
