I received my Runoff absentee ballot in the mail. Why are some offices and candidates marked out?

This is common practice and nothing to be alarmed about.  Because of the short time frame between the Primaries and Runoffs and the time it takes for ballots to be delivered by mail, recreating and reprinting Runoff absentee ballots is not an option in most cases.  Candidates that did not make the runoff, as well as offices for which the nominees have been decided, are marked through.  Any votes for offices or candidates that are marked through will not be counted.
