Kudos to the US Postal Service and my county recorder's office.

I have started a trip on short notice that had me fly from Phx to Washington state to pick up a motorhome and drive it to Nebraska (long story). I took my official absentee mail-in ballot with me to complete and mail on the way. Because of weather, I decided to stay 2 nights at the campground on the Umatilla reservation, which is in northeast Oregon. It is not the edge of the world, but on a clear day you could maybe see it from there.

The date for the ballot still being accepted was approaching, so I asked at the truckstop there if there was an official USPS box nearby. I was directed to a cluster mailbox at the back of the store, where a few different entities receive their mail. It had a small box labled "Outgoing Mail". This really didn't seem very official, but I decided to "git her done" and insert the envelope and hope for the best.

So this was last Saturday at noon. I signed up for texts to track my ballot with the Maricopa County Recorder's Office. On Monday I got a text stating that my ballot had been received by the Recorder and was awaiting signature confirmation.

The next day I received a text that my signature was verified and my ballot had been counted.

I am very impressed, especially with all the bad press this process has been enduring lately

2020 and from news reports you would think it is 1920 and voting is tough to get done

Got our early ballot...filled it out that evening and off they went the next day.

Don't understand WHY folks wait until last day and then stand in line for hours
Glad they do it....VOTING is IMPORTANT
With all the methods to cast your ballot I just don't understand standing in the long lines

i was a judge of election for 10-yrs for both early voting and election day and wondered the same thing so on election day i would ask a few voters why. most answered that it was their tradition or they enjoyed seeing their neighbors, some of whom were election judges at the polling place. we voted early in person almost a month ago.
