    it says official application not ballot but to me it is still open to problems.

      also NOT illegal. Since it's just an application to request an absentee ballot, the receiver has to take affirmative action for anything to happen. The GOP has been doing this for several elections. With all the other crap that's been happening, I understand your concern.

      •  That's what I got from the wording too. (2+ / 0-)

        This is the absentee ballot request, made electronic to make it easy to use. You use (or modify) the pre-filled information and send/print/fax the resulting request (application) to the state. This does naturally present some avenues for fraud, but if Vetwife actually sent this in it would probably be flagged by the state and refused since she's changed her address, had mail forwarded, etc. and wouldn't meet the requirements.

        It's probably harmless and just the GAGOPs attempt to scare up every last eligible voter they can find.
