I would also be curious as to the legal requirement to send absentees to all
those who voted on March 5th via absentee ballot.  I know it is a courtesy
but don't see where it is law.  We had a Select Board race here and mailed
several hundred ballots due to that campaign, but I know a lot of those
people don't care about a local school district re-vote on a budget and hate
to waste hundreds of dollars in postage if it is not required by law to mail
all these out again.

  This discussion is interesting but I sure would like someone from the SOS
to reply here so everyone can see the legal answer.  I find it very
disturbing that such an important vote can be rushed legally taking the
constitutional right to vote away due to time constraints.
  I would write to our representative but he is also a school board member!
