ALLEGHENY COUNTY, Pa. — New ballots are being sent out after 28,879 voters in Allegheny County received incorrect ones.
Elections Division officials said on Wednesday that mailing of the new, corrected ballots will be completed by Oct. 17, with most being delivered the week of Oct. 19.
The issue was the result of a ballot image mapping error by Midwest Direct, the company contracted to handle the printing, collating and mailing of ballots, officials said.
“The mailing by Midwest Direct is from a batch of 32,318 voters whose date of mailing shows in the state ballot tracker as September 28, 2020. There were no issues with the county data, but a ballot image mapping error by Midwest resulted in individual voter’s information being matched to the ballot for the next voter in that batch,” a news release said.
The corrected, re-issued ballots will be identified on the envelopes voters receive. The declaration envelopes will also have identification to indicate they’re the envelopes that should be used to return the corrected ballots.
Only one ballot will be counted for each voter, officials said.
