2020 ELECTION: 50,000 Ohio voters got the wrong absentee ballots
President Donald Trump has warned about election fraud for months and the problems plagued with universal mail-in-voting.
We are seeing those concerns come to fruition, when Franklin County, Ohio’s election board announced that 50,000 voters received an incorrect absentee ballot this week. Those ballots account for almost 21% of the ballots mailed out this week in Franklin County,
The President immediately tweeted on Friday, after his much anticipated radio rally with conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, “Breaking News: 50,000 Ohio Voters getting wrong absentee ballots. Out of control. A rigged election!!!”
The information was issued in a press release from the election board.
With only 25 days left until the election, the election board had to rush to start processing and printing ballot replacements to all individual voters who received the wrong ballots.
The officials noted that the ballots will be sent through the U.S. Postal Service within 72 hours to the voters.
“We want to make it clear that every voter who received an inaccurate ballot will receive a corrected ballot,” stated the election board said.
They noted that “stringent tracking measures are in place to guarantee that a voter can only cast one vote.”
