Thousands of undeliverable ballots returned to municipalities - VT Digger

Like a gigantic flock of lost, meandering sheep, thousands of undeliverable ballots are finding their way back to the municipalities. Some local voting officials are saying to state election officials, ‘we TOLD you this would happen. Now, what’s to be done?

"Clerks and state officials say this is because residents may have recently moved, or didn’t provide officials with precise or accurate address information. And they stress that people who haven’t received mailable ballots can still get in touch with local officials and request them. Amy Bovee, Burlington’s assistant city clerk, estimates that more than 1,000 absentee ballots have been returned to her office as undeliverable. There are about 26,000 active registered voters in Burlington."

    Condos does not have the legitimate authority to turn our voting upside down!

    Informed voting is a Norm, not ballots to people who follow nothing about governance,
    and just vote according to vague beliefs, and fleeting impressions of what politicians have claimed
    since their teenage years. They have no concern about spending, liberties, or limits of Government,
    “What’s in it for me – now? " I don’t care" either I don’t pay “taxes,”
    or I don’t even know how much they ALL Already total.
    I just want to “get more!”
    10,000? ’extra" ballots floating around is dangerously absurd!!

    Condos has failed as the proprietor of voting in the state of Vermont. It seems as though the voting rolls have never been updated and that is his responsibility. This has cast suspicion on the outcome.
