Adelphi’s Kathleen Watchorn and Shannon Lane were featured in a story about the absentee ballot voting process.
“Absentee ballots are opened by election officials and counted with all other ballots,” Shannon Lane, Professor in the School of Social Work at Adelphi University who has worked in the Senate for over 10 years, said. “Even if they arrive after election day, they are still counted as long as they were postmarked by November 7, the day before the election.”
People should start worrying about the deadline at the end of Oct., Kathleen Watchorn, Coordinator of Adelphi Votes, said. “How soon they get that ballot back is dependent on the county-back in Sept., Nassau County told me that in one day they had 2,000 absentee ballot applications so that’s a lot to turn around.”
