Report: College Students Can’t Cast Absentee Ballot Because They Can’t Find Stamps

To borrow a quote from Jonathan Quayle Higgins III.

With a British accent Oh My God!, What a bloody bunch of nitwits.

Life is hard; it’s harder if you’re stupid.

Why worry about Russians fixing elections when students can’t even figure out how to send in their vote?

We’ve all seen videos online where some young buck laughs at grandad for not knowing how to work the latest gadget. Those voice-activated web-connected home assistants, for example, that can dim your lights, place an online order, or do a Google search.

They love to laugh at the old guy.

But when experts found out young people had trouble with voting, people looked into why that was.

The answer was just sad.

“One thing that came up, which I had heard from my own kids but I thought they were just nerdy, was that the students will go through the process of applying for a mail-in absentee ballot, they will fill out the ballot, and then, they don’t know where to get stamps. That seems to be like a hump that they can’t get across,” Ms. Connors told WTOP on Tuesday.

“They all agreed that they knew lots of people who did not send in their ballots because it was too much of a hassle or they didn’t know where to get a stamp,” she continued.

Fairfax County General Registrar Gary Scott told the radio station that another obstacle for young voters as the midterm elections near will be properly filling out the “residence address” box regarding where they are registered to vote, which differs from the location an absentee ballot should arrive.

They didn’t know where to find a stamp? And they can’t follow instructions and figure out how to write their home address?

If only there were some sort of a device that could assist them with their ignorance. Say, one they carried with them everywhere in their pocket. It might help them with their trouble.

On second thought, if they can’t spend the energy it takes to figure out how to mail an envelope, would you lose any sleep at night if they don’t get their vote in?
