Voting problems a concern

Regarding the March 8 article, “More than 200 ballots delivered late.” We mailed our requests for absentee ballots the first week of February.

One family member received his absentee ballot from the elections office by February 15. The other absentee ballot mailed from the Elections Office on February 22 arrived on March 2.

Dilemma: If it took nine days to be delivered by the post office, should we take a chance on voting absentee and mailing it back when there are only three days left? No. I opted to go and vote in the cardboard box squeezed in the aisle in front of the counter at the hide-away elections office off Uren Street, behind the mental health building. Now that was an experience! Just try to find a parking space on that matterhorn parking lot. They really ought to provide a roller coaster to get you from your parking space next to the cemetery down to the office before you end up in the former.
