Your state requires that first time voters vote in person the first time they vote. If you are a first time voter you CANNOT vote by absentee ballot.

Argh, that really sucks! Does that mean you can't vote? Did you vote absentee when you were here?

Casey

i guess i should have said, "you will be disappointed to know..."

The more I think about this, the more it bothers me. I wonder how many students were planning on mailing in their absentee vote and now can't.

First my ballot was sent to the wrong address. After the 10th I called inquiring about the ballot's where abouts. The woman told me they had to weight to rreceive it returned to them (the sender). They still have not received it - after 25 days. So, it's lost in the mail. I faxed them the correct address and they said they would get it to me if it ever came back to their office - which it has not.
