U.S. presidential election ballots sent by mistakes October 10 at 2:43 p.m.
In the United States, as the presidential election approaches on the third of next month, there have been a series of mistakes, including the sending of incorrect ballots to large numbers of voters over postal ballots, which are expected to increase significantly due to the spread of the new coronavirus.
Franklin County’s Board of Elections, located in the heart of the Midwest and Ohio, announced today that 49,669 of nearly 240,000 postal ballots already sent to voters were incorrect.
According to the Associated Press, the name of candidates from different constituencies was printed in the column of the House of Representatives election held at the same time as the presidential election, so the Election Commission will re-ship the correct form within three days to ensure that there is no double vote.
In response, President Trump took to Twitter to say, “It’s out of hand. It’s an illegally operated election!! I wrote.
According to the New York Times and other leading newspapers, the wrong name and address were printed on a reply envelope sent to about 100,000 voters late last month in Brooklyn, southern New York City.
The city’s election board has processed the sending of ballots and other items, but if there are two votes from the same voter, the second vote will be given priority.
