Send tardy voters a note in the mail

I would like to address the article in the Sept. 8 Herald, “They voted but their ballots came in too late to be counted.” The 1,271 rejected ballots are just above 1 percent of all votes. Don’t waste your time educating the 99 percent of us that get it: Get your ballot in on time.

The county Auditor’s Office has the names and addresses of those ballots that arrived late. Send them a bright yellow postcard that says that “Your vote did not count, it arrived too late.”
