College Students Denied the Vote

Some Parents in the 34th district are very upset because their kids who attend OSU and OU did not receiving their absentee ballots. A judge has ruled that anyone who did not receive their absentee ballot, but should have, is entitled to vote with a provisional ballot. The problem is that the kids away at college can't do that unless they drive home. Few if any can do so, therefore they have been denied the vote. Is this another result of the lack of staff at the BOE to handle the level of voter participation this year? More lawsuits may be filed on this issue.
