Voters say they received absentee ballots late

Up to 100 voters have complained to the Philadelphia watchdog group the Committee of Seventy that they received absentee ballots too late to make yesterday's 5 p.m. filing deadline, the group reported yesterday. Some have not received them at all.

Voters who missed the deadline may still send them to county election headquarters by 8 p.m. Tuesday. Under federal law, the state must count votes on valid ballots for president, vice president and Congress. Votes for state and local offices and ballot questions will not be counted.
