Of the 20,000 ballots that were mailed with the error on the voter ID envelope, 139, or 1 percent, have been returned with an incomplete driver’s license number, election officials said Friday.
Of the 139 returned ballots, 53 voters have returned the notices correcting the error. Of the remaining 86 ballots that still need the correct documentation, 46 voters were called by an elections official and said they would return the notice.
“We expect more corrections to come in soon because the mass mailing was sent this week,” elections Director Diane Noonan and Deputy Director Eric Corbin said in a joint statement. “The Board of Elections will continue to reach out to these voters as much as possible to make sure as many ballots as possible are counted.”
