Yesterday morning [May 7th] the Elections office was contacted by several voters who had received incorrect return envelopes and/or mail ballots. We immediately contacted the vendor, Michigan Election Resources. After looking into the matter, the vendor has accepted full responsibility for the mishap.
The vendor’s representative explained that during printing and sorting process, the machines use a camera process to ensure correct matching of election materials. When items do not match, the machine stops and a person comes to fix the error and restart the process. It was at that point that the mix-up occurred, due to human error.
In speaking with the vendor, we believe that this happened to fewer than one hundred voters in zip codes 17552 (Mount Joy) and 17547 (Marietta) were affected. Voters in those zip codes are asked to check their return envelopes to ensure that their names are on those envelopes. For those who received the incorrect materials, they should call the Elections office at 717-299-8293. We will cancel the original ballot and issue a new ballot through the mail directly from our office or they can come in and we handle it in person.
The Elections office will be open for any affected voters to come in and receive a reissued ballot Monday-Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm. Additionally the office will be open May 13, 14 and 17 until 8:00pm; May 15 from 8:00am-12:00pm; and on May 18 (Primary Election Day) from 7:00am to 8:00pm.
Voting hours are 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM
