In response to the letter published Oct. 18 from Katey Vesel concerning absentee applications and the amount of personal information that is mailed, exposed, on the application, I share her concerns. However, these applications do not come from the Cass County Auditor's Office; they are from your political party. The postcard applications that we send out, in response to requests to our office for an application, are 5.5-by-8.5-inch postcards that you complete and fold over and tape. Your information is protected on the inside of the mailer until we open it at our office.

Montplaisir is Cass County’s auditor.
