Thousands of Orange Voter Cards Being Returned Could Prevent You From Voting 1/24/14
CBS 7 News
If you got an orange voter card in your mail this year, then you may have been one of the lucky ones. The orange voter card allows you to vote when the time comes around to cast your ballot.
Between wrong addresses, people moving, and mix-ups in the mail, some of the orange cards never made it to their homes. Mitzi Schibel with the Ector County Voting Office says about 5,000 cards got sent back to their office out of the 68,000 they sent out. Similarly, Stella Flores with the Midland County Elections Office says they got back about 5,000 of the 67,000 they mailed out as well. She says the next step is to send confirmation cards to see if they can get more information from the voter. If they donít receive a confirmation card back, Schibel says the voter will be in a suspended status.
