Re: “Ron and the recount

We had no problems voting overseas, always got our absentee ballots, etc. And we are from Florida originally, from the county that was thrown out during the first Bush election, so we are used to this, sadly. I guess I was just hoping AZ would be different, but in actuality my early ballot never even showed up in the mail this year.

Re: “Ron and the recount

My husband's vote wasn't counted, because he registered too 'late' (He was deployed, his FL ID expired while he was gone, so he needed to get an AZ ID, and couldn't until he got home). No one ever told him it was 'too late' to register, and he was entered into the system of resident voters accordingly. He went to the right polling place, was on the list of voters expected, and did everything just how he should have, without a hiccup or red flag on voting day. Still, they didn't count his vote…. because ????
So basically, a member of the U.S. military got his vote thrown out because he was deployed at a time that was inconvenient for Arizona.
He has since signed a petition to get it counted, and hopefully they will act like they care about what the people of this city want. Military members bust their asses for this country and deserve to be treated fairly when it comes to electing the people who literally have a hand in their futures. We love Tucson and are happy to be active parts of the system, I am just disheartened that this is our first experience with it.
