The Perils of Absentee Voting

Morning Edition had a story today about postal delivery speed in major cities (click link above). The study was for intra-city mail delivery. Given how common by-mail absentee voting has become and how critical it is likely to be in 2008, this study should be a must-read for election officials and campaigns who rely on the mail system for a large and growing segment of voting services. We will post a copy of the report online when we get it.
