Sample ballots go out to city and township clerks around Genesee County from Gleason's office
FLINT (CCN) — City clerks and township clerks around Genesee County should have sample ballots by now. They were mailed out to them last week by the office of Genesee County Clerk John Gleason, according to a press release by Deputy Clerk Leslie Raleigh. More than 400 military and overseas ballots were discovered to be incorrect last week when they were downloaded from a database of Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.
Tracy Wimmer, a spokesman for Benson's office, told the media: "It's not clear how many of the more than 400 ballots were actually sent to voters before the error was discovered and corrected."
The mistake was listing the incorrect running mate for President Donald Trump. The ballots incorrectly stated Trump's running mate as the Libertarian Party candidate in the place of Vice President Mike Pence.
