Mismarked absentee ballots in NYC lead to 'mass confusion,' official says

Mismarked absentee ballots in NYC lead to 'mass confusion,' official says

New York City voters who planned to vote by mail in November's election are worried their votes will be invalid after residents in two boroughs have complained that their absentee ballots are mismarked.

Brooklyn voters have received ballots bearing someone else's name and address on the accompanying return envelope, while residents of both Brooklyn and Queens received ballots incorrectly marked as military ballots, according to local reports.

Those ballots read "Official Absentee Military Ballot," but a Board of Elections spokesperson confirmed to the Post that it was supposed to say "Absentee--Military" but the dash was mistakenly omitted.

Residents in several neighborhoods reported receiving absentee ballots bearing the wrong name and address on the accompanying return envelope meant for returning the completed ballot, according to Gothamist.

New York City Board of Elections Executive Director Michael Ryan told Fox News that the printing errors were made by third-party vendor Phoenix Graphics.
