Even as the deadline for those ballots to be postmarked nears, problems are brewing.

An Illinois county election official is telling the ABC 7 I-Team that thousands -- potentially hundreds of thousands -- of voters who are expecting a ballot sent to them by mail may be disenfranchised. ...

She and others called the I-Team when they noticed the return address is not their local election official but instead a PO box for the organization. ...

"If it affects only one person, it's wrong. If it affected just me, it's wrong. System needs to be checked.

The IDCC told the I-Team that they used their PO box as the return address because they "are better able to track the process and make sure there are fewer problems." ...

Why are you sending it to a PO Box instead of directly to an election authority?

We are doing everything we can to make sure our voters vote - this is pretty standard. In order to help Illinoisans apply for an absentee ballot the ILDCC incurred the cost of the postage so that we can help ensure folks get their ballot on time and that we know who is voting. Turn out as everyone knows is critical to this election. By working this through a PO Box we are better able to track the process and make sure there are fewer problems.


Just send the ballots to the party and let them handle it ...
