Concern raised about oversea absentee ballots

October 14, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating whether military personnel overseas received Illinois absentee ballots in time for their votes to count.

Ballots to military personnel and other Americans abroad were supposed to have been mailed by September 18. Now the U.S. Justice Department is investigating if that deadline was met across Illinois.

According to a report by the Illinois Board of Elections to the Department of Justice, 26 election boards in the state missed the deadline and another 21 did not reply to a status request.
