hell WEREN'T DOING IT.
Given the way Retirees have been treated in the last year, we can understand why some
people would be afraid of the Retiree vote, but it in no way justifies denying them their RIGHT
MACOUT has repeatedly besieged the election committee and election monitor Judge
Kathleen Roberts over the issue of retiree mail-in ballots.
Responding to our requests that a ballot be sent to all retirees, one excuse for refusing
was that a retiree could vote by mail and also walk in and vote.
We pointed out that since the mail-in ballots were due 12/3, and walk in was on 12/10 and
12/11, there was a seven day "window of opportunity" to verify who voted
The following day we were told that the 12/3 date was "discovered" to be a
"typo", with all ballots due on 12/10, so that only people who requested a
ballot could receive one.
Confused? Don't feel bad. Almost everyone else is also, And that is the point.
Through rules weighted their way, altered at will by the election committee, and
rubber stamped by the election monitor, the chance of a fair election seems remote.
Brothers and Sisters, DON'T TOLERATE THIS TREATMENT!!!
