Two U.S. absentee ballots turn up in Denmark
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (CNN) -- Two absentee ballots from the U.S. presidential election have turned up in the mailbox of a family on the Danish island of Fyn, the Danish newspaper Fyens Stifttidende reports.
A family in Odense, Fyn's main city, discovered the two Washington state absentee ballots over the weekend, mixed with some material they had ordered from a company in the United States.
At first the family thought they had received some additional advertising, so they opened one of the envelopes. To their surprise, they found an American presidential ballot marked for George W. Bush.
One of the ballots was cast by a man from Bellevue, Washington, who said he didn't know how his vote ended up in Denmark.
The Danish newspaper quoted the American voter as saying he had no intention of pursuing the irregularity.
