My husband and I applied for absentee ballots, and I picked them up in person from the Putnam County Board of Elections. When we sat down to vote, we discovered that his ballot lacked the signature area on the outside of the envelope. Ballots without this signature are invalid.
I emailed the Board of Elections but did not receive a response. Fortunately, we had the ability to drive to Carmel to get this rectified in person, but it might have been a big problem if my husband were out of the country as he planned to be. Examine your voting materials carefully and consider voting early in case you need turnaround time as we did.
