Ohio Absentee Ballot Postage Issue
WCMH-4 in Columbus just reminded viewers who are voting absentee to affix $.63 in postage to return your ballot. The problem is the correct postage is $.87. My ballot, from Clark County, says this in bold/underline. Just an FYI. Any other postage issues?

6. You may have read my post about Butler County, Ohio (near Cincy)
Not only were absentee voters told the wrong amount of postage, some of the absentee ballots were returned for insuffucient postage!!! I have reprinted the article in a following post.

Keep your eyes on Ohio, folks. The game is afoot.

2. No postage needed on my absentee ballot in Cuyahoga County.
They enclosed a pre-paid envelope. Thanks!

Unbelievable! I worried that the postage thing was designed to confuse people!

4. Same here in Washington, but if you use just one first-class stamp,
it will still be delivered. Had this problem in a past election; you'd think they'd remember that and note how much postage is needed. :eyes:

I posted this several days ago regarding postage problems on absentee ballots in Butler County!

From the Cincinnati Enquirer... http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/200 ...

Oops! Wrong postage on ballots
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HAMILTON The Butler County board of elections mailed 5,250 absentee ballots that misinformed voters of the postage needed to return completed ballots for the Nov. 7 election.

The ballots, postmarked Oct. 9 and Oct. 10, included an insert that said they should be returned to the Butler County Board of Elections with a 63-cent stamp. The correct postage is 87 cents.

Some ballots were returned to absentee voters for insufficient postage. County post offices now will be instructed to send all absentee ballots to the Hamilton Post Office, said Betty McGary, deputy director of the elections board.

The board reached an agreement with the post office to pay the difference for absentee ballots with insufficient postage... MORE
