Reports of some military members from Missouri not being able to vote in the August 3rd Primary because of a delay in the ballots has prompted the state’s election authority to step up efforts to make it easier for those folks to cast a ballot in November. Secretary of State spokesman Spence Jackson says it seems like only a handful of military voters might not have gotten their ballots in, but the office is still working with the Defense Department to make sure it doesn’t happen again. He says we could see faxed or e-mail ballots in the future. Democrats have blasted Republican Secretary of State Matt Blunt for the failure of getting those votes counted. Ironic, says Jackson, who points out it was Democrat leaders who delayed the finalization of the ballots during the dust-up over the same-sex marriage amendment. In turn, this delayed the ballots being placed in the hands of members of the military.
