One effect of the growth of absentee ballot use is the shortening of the period that candidates and proposition advocates/opponents have to communicate with voters. Less of an issue for national elections or well-funded statewide ballot measures, but shortening the period by even a week is one less week that challengers and newcomers have to reach voters and one week sooner that they have to raise the money to pay for the mailers, etc. to reach voters.

Len Raphael, former city council candidate, Oakland
