Election Officials in Pennsylvania County Say Nearly 29K Voters Received Wrong Ballots in Mail
Last week, we reported that nearly 50,000 voters in Franklin County, Ohio, received incorrect absentee ballots in the mail.
This seems to have happened again, this time in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
According to Newsmax, election officials in the state’s second-most populous county said that almost 29,000 voters were mailed ballots with the wrong contests printed on them. These voters will receive new ballots next week with the mistake corrected.
The officials blamed the contractors hired to handle the ballots’ printing, collating and mailing. They called it a “ballot image mapping error.”
Newsmax continues that voters started contacting the county officials last week, saying that their ballots showed elections for other districts. The officials said that they would look for the wrong ballots as they come in and will set them aside, to be reviewed by Allegheny County’s election returns board after the election to ensure that they only count one ballot per voter.
We have continuously reported about the problems that can arise from mail-in-voting, and this is just another case to add to the list of examples.
