“In a nationwide rule change that went unnoticed this summer, the U.S. Postal Service has forbidden employees from signing absentee ballots as witnesses while on duty,” the Anchorage Daily News reports.
“The change could make it more difficult for Alaskans, particularly rural residents, to vote by mail.”
“In Alaska and several other states, absentee ballots must be signed by a witness who can verify that a ballot was legitimately filled out by a particular voter. Without a signature, the ballot will not be counted.”Save to Favorites
