Chicago Officials Hand-Delivering Ballots To Prisoners
Which is interesting, given that Illinois is one of the states that didn’t get its absentee ballots out to deployed soldiers in time.
Guess it tells you where their priorities are.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Board of Elections hand-delivers ballots to inmates in Cook County Jail. The board doesn’t even wait for the inmates to apply — it brings the applications with the ballots! More than 2,600 inmates have cast ballots — strikingly similar to the 2,600 soldiers who will likely not receive a ballot for Tuesday’s election.
Chicago is where military voters get disenfranchised and prisoners get ballots hand-delivered to their jail cells.Tags: chicago
