Military and Overseas Ballots Sent for Primary Election
Secretary of State Jim Bennett announced that the first round of military and overseas ballots for the June 3rd, 2014 primary election have been sent. Of the 59 jurisdictions that had valid absentee ballot applications submitted on or before the 45th day before the election, 57 reported that they had sent those ballots on or before the federal deadline. More than half of those counties—32—reported that their ballots had been sent a week early. Two jurisdictions sent some of their ballots two days late this year. Secretary Bennett also announced that for the 2014 primary and general election, Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act voters will have an extra week in which to get their voted ballots back to the county.
