The New York Times has an editorial entitled New Standards for Elections[*] in which several things are pointed out that, in the opinion of the author, are necessary for better elections in the future. One of them in particular reminded me of something I read:
12. Improved absentee ballot procedures. Voters outside of their states, including military voters, have a right to receive absentee ballots in a timely fashion, which did not always happen this year.
"Did not always happen". I suppose that's one way to describe the experience of at least one person on my friends list.
Incidentally, that editorial is part of a series which is online at nytimes.com/makingvotescount.
