Absentee ballots being sent to U.S. military in Afghanistan may have been burned in a transport plane crash at Shindad Air Base Oct. 19, according to the Associated Press.
From the piece:
Federal officials in their email to state election offices said they did not know if any ballots were destroyed. They also said the lost mail was limited to one zip code.
But they recommended that election officials resend a new ballot to anyone who requested one since the first ballot may have been destroyed in the crash and fire.
It goes without saying that these are likely mostly to be Romney supporters. I would imagine that now they won’t be voting.
