The continuing MN absentee ballot issue

Today’s story in the Star Tribune highlights what is going to be an ongoing issue as (not if) we move toward more use of absentee ballots in this country.  There are inconsistent rules across states regarding when and how absentee ballots are accepted, and even within states, rules are unequally applied.

I know Thad likes to point this out from time to time: the move from electronic voting has lots of advocates, but we need to keep front and center the potential issues we may encounter with paper.  It is not a flawless technology, not by a long shot.
