My wife and I go to Florida for the winter and need absentee bal

North Cape May - My wife and I go to Florida for the winter and need absentee ballots to vote on Election Day. This year, my wife's absentee ballot arrived 3:30 p.m. in Florida Nov. 1. Mine had not shown up as of Nov. 1. By the time her ballot reaches Cape May County, the election will be long over. Thanks to the county election folks for nullifying our votes this year. To make it better next time, it takes seven to 10 business days to reach the Cape May Post Office, and then get forwarded to Florida. Plus, one day to open, read, and run it back to the post office. Then it needs another five to seven business days to get back to Cape May County from Florida.
