Some absentee ballots go awry in Philadelphia
Monday, November 1st, 2010
Philadelphia election officials said Monday the postal service has failed to properly deliver some absentee ballots.
When a voter applies for and is sent an absentee ballot, he or she marks it with votes, seals it and mails it in. But in a handful of cases, voters say ballots they mailed were returned to them instead of being delivered to the board of elections.
Election officials say the problem isn't widespread, and they will make every effort to ensure those votes are counted.
