Absentee Votes Just Found from 2005, Salt Lake County

Label this, “Something that doesn’t usually happen with Precinct Based Poll Voting”


Every vote did not count in Salt Lake County three years ago.
    A metal ballot box – still locked – was recently found in Cottonwood Heights and two absentee ballots were inside.
    Salt Lake County Clerk Sherry Swensen says her office determined the ballots were absentee ballots for the 2005 primary election. One was from a West Jordan resident, the other Salt Lake City.

Reminds me of the problems with late arriving mail when that mail might be your vote….
