Why can’t the absentee ballot applications be put online and printed out? It seems the district is intent on keeping voting down and making it less accessible. Sad for Shen!

A. That is the way it has always been done because we track who we send applications to. It is in compliance with applicable election laws. Due to misinformation being shared regarding the upcoming permissive referendum on April 4th , it is imperative for voters to know the strict conditions for completing an absentee ballot. The absentee ballot is available only if one expects, in good faith, that one will be out of town or unable to come to the polls for one of the reasons given on the application, which are very specific and don’t include bad weather. Please be reminded that providing false information about the reason one is asking for a ballot is a misdemeanor.
