A large Ohio county determined that about 50,000 voters received an incorrect absentee ballot (just like the one that Trump used) this week – accounting for almost 21% of the ballots mailed out this week in Franklin County, which includes the state capital of Columbus.
In a press release Friday, the election board said it’s started the process of printing and mailing replacement ballots to every voter who received the wrong ballot. Those ballots will be sent through the U.S. Postal Service within 72 hours.
“We want to make it clear that every voter who received an inaccurate ballot will receive a corrected ballot,” the board said. “Stringent tracking measures are in place to guarantee that a voter can only cast one vote.”
The election board also plans to mail informational postcards to all impacted voters telling them about the problem and what to do next. Voters can verify the information on their ballot here.
