The dust hasn't settled from Tuesday's election. But what is more unsettling than the dust is the entire voting process.
I am first unhappy because my son never received his absentee ballot. I mailed the envelope at the El Centro post office (I walked in and dropped it in the slot). When by election day he didn't have the ballot, I assumed it had been lost in the mail. On election day after I voted I checked the voters' signature page and noticed my son's name didn't have an "AV" for absentee voter next to his name.
Now my question is where is my son's ballot? The precinct worker also informed me that many people had complained about not receiving an absentee ballot.
On election night as we waited and waited for the final count, Calexico's ballots were first reported as "late" and then later the radio announcer reported the "Elections Department was looking in to the reason they were late." Finally about 11:30 p.m. the ballot boxes were delivered. Where had they been?
