That was smart of him to show up at the township office. Hopefully the township has procedures on keeping in touch with residents in the military, or the lead clerk is personally involved.
My home county in Oregon kept in contact by occasionally sending me postcards I could send in whenever my duty station changed. Since I was at one duty station for 51-months there wasn’t much need for the postcards.
It was a small county, and everyone knew everyone else. Our county clerk had a son who was a Marine.
One problem is that like many of the little towns in Michigan is that military ballots aren’t at all common. My township of 1800 people usually has 2 or 3 military ballots to mail out. Other smaller townships might not see a military ballot for 10 years.
Mosherville Michigan is taking heat for 1 ballot that a service member got 4 days late. The ballot apparently got held up somewhere in transit. Nobody did anything wrong and the soldier has probably voted and got the ballot back home by now.
Sadly, looks like most FReepers want it to be fraud and will ignore any other explanations.
