Deferred: The Sequel…Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love My Local Government.

Dear Elections Commission:

If you want to reassure voters that you’ve got this error in hand, that the 10,000 missing mail in ballots have been rescued from the secret underground bunker that Tom Tancredo and Marilyn Musgrave put them in, that it’s all being corrected by serious, earnest, intelligent people…

Wait, no, I’ll just hit the robocall itself.

Disclaimer, the dates I will mention are *exactly as told to me in a robocall:*

Evidently those of us found to be condemmed to the Island of Lost Ballots, had to be notified by phone today.

The recorded message said, in part…

“These ballots will be mailed to you from the Denver Post Office on Monday October 27th”

…Mail In Ballots should be postmarked by Friday, October 27th.”

I’ll say it slowly:

*If *you* *want* *to* *actually* *work* *for* *a* *living* *you* *might* *try* *checking* *a* *calendar* *before* *hitting* *the* *Record/Play* button on that 1978 vintage audio cassette recorder used to capture the recording.

Unless of course they’re using one of those pesky time machines (borrowed from Time Tunnel, Trek, The Bullwinkle cartoons, or that curve-wrecker Hermoine Granger of the ‘Harry Potter’ books/films..) and delivering the ballots to some future year that will have a ‘Friday October 27th’ in it.

Can we send the ElectionFolk to summer school?
