Brooklyn Absentee Voters Must Check Accuracy of Ballots after 100,000 Printed Incorrectly
By Yehudit Garmaise
In preparation for the presidential election on Tues., Nov. 3, Brooklyn residents who are planning to vote by absentee ballot are asked to check immediately to ensure that their names and addresses on their oath envelopes are correct because the Board of Elections just discovered that 100,000 absentee ballots were printed incorrectly.
Voters who find that their names and addresses are incorrectly listed on their oath envelopes are asked to not use those absentee ballots. The Board of Elections will be sending out replacement ballot packages, so voters do not have to request new ones.
However, upon receiving their new absentee ballots, voters should ensure to again check the accuracy of their names and addresses on their oath envelopes.
Voters who find that their names and addresses on the oath envelopes of their absentee ballots are correct may use the absentee ballots they were sent.
Voters who do not receive their replacement ballots should contact the Board of Elections at 1-866-VOTE-NYC, 1-866-868-3692, or by e-mail at [email protected]
In addition, the Board of Elections will be trying to inform voters by phone and e-mail to ensure that they receive correct ballots.
