I religiously vote in every election. I feel this is my patriotic right and duty as a citizen of this great country, but then I find out they let some idiot be in charge of the early voting records for my area and the votes are somewhat compromised, or might be.

Well whoever or whatever group of people were in charge of this should face some sort of jail time as they are taking away a lot of people's votes, or in fact voting rights, which should have been counted on Election Day. There are no excuses for this type of behavior, and whether this would have changed the outcome of an election, it is absolutely horrible this even happened. I am very concerned for the next election. Something has to change.

Jeff Bridegroom, Chesterton
