Please, this post is not meant to become a political discussion. But, because this is important enough to our US democracy, this is important for you to know if you vote via absentee ballot. And it's important no matter your political party. If you receive a letter from a political candidate with an application to receive an absentee ballot, do NOT send it in. Reports are coming in that some of these are actually meant to REMOVE you from the voting rolls. If you want to learn more, just Google "Vote Caging." The reports are that these are being sent out in record numbers in contested states, those that are currently close in the polling numbers and are going to determine this election in November. What should you do? Contact your local clerk responsible for voting in your county. Tell them what you received and request the proper form from your clerk. Do not throw it away. They may need to see it. And, if you've already sent in one of these forms, contact your clerk immediately and let them know what happened so that they can direct you as to what to do next. Your vote is important. Make sure it counts!
