It Magically Disappears

I was disappointed in the Colorado Springs voting. We had 3 issues to be voted on, it had to do with taxes. In the higher income districts, these 3 issues magically disappeared from the ballots.
One woman, came out from voting & wanted to know why these issues were not on her ballot. She was given a lame excuse but it sent them scrambling. Everyone of the ballots in these districts had these 3 issues missing
I guess they are not going to do anything about it, the issues passed & we are going to have higher property taxes. I smell a HUGE STINKY RAT!!! And I don't mind telling the world about it!!
So, after the disappointment of the elections, in the mail I got the renewal for our business license. It is not a biggy, the state use to send the notice & I would mail a check. Now, I have to do it by computer. There are 8 steps I have to go thru once I get to the site, then pay, then download a copy for myself. It was much easier when I just got to mail a check in (sigh)
Well, I feel a lot better now that I got to bitch, moan & complain.
Everybody take care :)

That is really strange. I wonder if you shouldn't send that situation to the national news desk. We all have the right to vote on tax issues. That is just awful.

Beth, yes it is strange. I've been told that the county clerk office has 9 days for a complete voting count. We are a military town & some of the military votes haven't come in yet (don't know why).

But I haven't been able to find anything more on the issues missing from the ballots. I am going to have to google the national news desk, I've never heard of it. Thanks for the tip :)
