Michigan Butterfly Ballot
Kevin Drum passes on word from emperorsargosa word that the absentee ballots in Michigan are misaligned so that the Bush-Cheney line has nothing to mark and the Kerry-Edwards line presumably would result in a vote for Bush-Cheney.
It’s quite bizarre and, frankly, inexcusable. One could understand a glitch on a race for dogcatcher on page 12, but how does one not notice such a glaring error on the most important race on the ballot?
Fortunately, as Blue Lemur reports, a corrected ballot is being printed and distributed. What happens to the ballots that have already been sent out is unclear, though.
