I would have to hire a ton of people just to do the mailings! I can't keep up with just the absentees for a general election without hiring extra people. I have 15,000 on the checklist. For the primary alone it would cost $15,000 for postage! My budget would not allow that. When I asked my state rep if there was any bill on the floor regarding primary going to caucus, the answer was no. Doing this on top of all our other clerkly duties? Impossible!

FYI, if you haven't reviewed your Weekly Legislative Report yet, H. 47 would require us to mail an absent voter ballot to everyone on our checklist!
