Absentee Ballots

By  | 

King said in a letter to Secretary of State Nancy Worley last week that he made the decision not to take legal action after being assured by Tuscaloosa County officials that no voters would be denied the right to vote because of the late ballots.

Worley had asked King to consider taking legal action to assure that the ballots of military personnel in Tuscaloosa County are counted.

State law required absentee ballots to be available to be sent to military personnel 40 days before an election.

This means they should have been ready to be mailed by April 22 for the June 1 primary elections.
