Absentee ballot designed to confuse voters
Is anyone surprised at the number of rejected absentee ballots from the November 2021 election? See “New law leads to rejected ballots,” (News, Nov. 27). My wife and I voted absentee in Cobb County, and the very first piece of information requested on the ballot (top right) was for my “ID Number.” Well, exactly what number is this? I assumed that my voter ID number was requested, but the application should have added that one simple word to avoid ambiguity. So I called Cobb County Elections to verify. I’m just curious, why wasn’t this simple word added to the ballot in the first place? One can certainly assume, based upon the absurd accusations about the 2020 elections, that this was done intentionally to confuse voters.
