[Madison, Wisc...] Despite assurances to the contrary, the Federal Voting Assistance Program website still is publishing an incorrect deadline for the return of military ballots in Wisconsin. As a result of this error, thousands of Wisconsin servicemen and women could be disenfranchised in this key swing state this November.
The FVAP website incorrectly stated ballots must be returned by November 16. The actual deadline is 4 p.m. November 9. Any military ballots received in that intervening week would not have been counted by local and state election officials.
