21. Oscar had just moved to New York City. He registered to vote. A week later, he received his voter card. Now he was a registered voter. He read the voter notice from the Board of Elections. It said to call VOTE–NYC if he had a question. He had a question. He wanted to use an absentee ballot. But the notice said the absentee ballot was for ill people. It was also for physically disabled people. Oscar wasn't ill, nor was he disabled. He called VOTE–NYC. He said, "I'm not ill, and I'm not physically disabled. But I want to use an absentee ballot." The worker said, "Give me your address. I'll mail you an application today. You'll receive an absentee ballot before every election." Oscar said, "But isn't there a problem? What about the notice? What about being ill or disabled?" The worker said, "Don't worry. We'll rewrite that." 4.3
