My mail from June 13, 2006

old_mail_400_postmark.jpg

I don’t know if everyone will be able to see this, but just last week these three pieces of mail showed up in my mail box. The postmark is from June 13th, 2006. These three pieces of mail arrived on August 2, 2007. They were all sent 1st class mail from Bellevue, Washington. Now I don’t know about you, but this is exactly one of the things that bothers me about voting through the United States mail. Your ballot must be postmarked by the election day, but if it arrives oh… 14 months late… I believe that it just won’t count. Just a hunch.

It reminded me of this photo I took at a friends house earlier this year and forgot to post:

Return to sender vote-by mail ballot

Now, in light of the fact that King County’s Vote-by mail is open to voting by dogs, I think that getting a few extra ballots in the mail is an open invitation to committing vote fraud.

  1. I am blown away by the continuing ignorance of the American public and the total lack of understanding shown about VBM and just voting in general. I am not suprised that we have such a train wreck in Washington, the general public just does not get up off their Fox News watching butts and find out what is really coming down. America has its collective head up it’s lazy ass.
