My questions are: under your system, for a postal vote to be valid, is the critical date when its posted or when its received by the electoral authorities? Is there a cut off date? Is it the same across the whole country or does it differ from state to state?
That's the question that is still being asked.
It seams like the states that are doing the mail ballot for the first time have different times. Some want it postmarked by 11/3 others want it in their office on 11/3 others have all kinds of different times.
Where I live in Colorado my ballot needs to be in their office on election day. I dropped my ballot off in a ballot box a week ago and it shows that it was accepted as a valid ballot
