Utah County Mails Out More Than 13K Ballots With No Signature Line
It seems that almost daily we find stories about problems with mail-in voting.
Yesterday, we reported that a Pennsylvania county sent 29,000 ballots with the wrong races on them, and last week we reported on a story of an Ohio county that mailed incorrect absentee ballots to almost 50,000 voters.
The latest case of mail-in voting problems comes from Sanpete County, Utah, where over 13,000 mail-in ballots mailed to voters were missing the area for voters to place a signature, according to Breitbart.
“We’re going to make the votes count" said Sanpete County Clerk Sandy Neill
Voters will be sent a postcard with instructions on how to sign the ballot or a place to sign the postcard itself (if voters already sent back the ballot without a signature) #MailInBallots #Election2020

According to FOX 13, Utah’s mail-in ballots require a signature from the voter before the ballot is allowed to be counted. The area in question was in a small area on the back of the return envelope.
FOX 13 adds that Sanpete County Clerk Sandy Neill said that the omission was the printing facility’s error, and that the winter will be sending a notecard to voters with detailed instructions on how to proceed.
It should be obvious to everyone by now how chaotic mail-in voting can be, and why elections cannot be run this way in the future.
