Sign up once, get absentee ballots forever

By June Watanabe

~~<p>Question: I was surprised to get in the mail an absentee ballot. I don&rsquo;t recollect asking for one. I had planned to vote on primary election day as a walk-in, because I like to see how things are going. Why did I get a ballot in the mail? I ended up voting absentee anyway. My friend said that the last election was a mail-in special election and that was the only way you could vote. Would the elections office think that then meant we wanted to vote absentee from that point on?</p>
<p>Answer: That election had nothing to do with absentee mail-in voting.</p>
