College Students Not Mailing Absentee Ballots Because They Don’t Know Where to Buy Stamps

“That seems to be like a hump that they can’t get across.”

This might be a good argument for raising the voting age. Wow.

WTOP News reports:

Why college students don’t vote absentee? They don’t know where to buy a postage stamp

“Vote or die.” Unless, it’s too hard to find a stamp.

A Fairfax County focus group this summer found many college students who have gotten an absentee ballot simply fail to send it back because a U.S. Postal Service stamp seems to be a foreign concept to them.

“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,” Lisa Connors with the Fairfax County Office of Public Affairs said.

“That seems to be like a hump that they can’t get across.”

The focus group included college interns from across numerous county departments.
“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,” Connors said.

“Across the board, they were all nodding and had a very spirited conversation about ‘Oh yeah, I know so many people who didn’t send theirs in because they didn’t have a stamp.’”

File under “Can’t Make This Stuff Up”. What’s really scary is these kids are supposed to be the future leaders, movers and shakers of the country.

You mean, there’s no app for that? They just need an app.

Shhhhh! Nobody tell them!

My vote-by-mail ballot now comes with a postage-paid envelope. The voter used to have to find a stamp, but it required a >1 oz. stamp, which most people don’t have at hand.

If you are a college student and you can’t figure out how to get a postage stamp – I’m glad your vote will not be counted. You are officially too stupid to have your choice recorded.

    Have you ever been on vacation, and after spending time writing a postcard to a friend, discovered you don’t know or can’t find anywhere to buy a stamp? Th.

LOL, ROFLMAO

Obviously, this is racist. Some people of color didn’t have numerous post offices in their neighborhoods growing up (I won’t suggest that their neighborhood Post Offices were burned down during riots — what idiots burn their own neighborhoods down??), and therefore have no idea what a Post Office is or how to locate one.

Postage stamps? EVERYONE knows you buy them in the checkout line at the supermarket.

Oh, come on. This just can’t be true. If it is, civilization is doomed. God help us.
