When I called the second time I was told they weren't sure if it had arrived. So I called again the next day, again I was told I was denied and they only way I would be able to get approval this close to the election was I had to have someone carry the form to the elections office nearest my home - which wasn't very close, but closest to my home address in CA. I had to have the request for a ballot form signed by me and dropped off at the office in person. Well, there was no way for me to get that it before the election. I was really suspicious as to why my request was denied twice. I think it might have been because on the form you are required to list your political party affiliation. I'm a Republican so were my requests trashed?
