15,000 Ballots Mailed With Printing Error Leads to Polling Place Confusion

About 30 percent of the sample ballots mailed to Cecil County’s (MD) 52,188 registered voters this week listed the wrong polling place—a mistake attributed to a printing glitch—and will be corrected Friday when postcards go out with accurate information.

County Election Director Debbie Towery said the error only applied to about 30 percent of the mailings—or roughly about 15,600—and all information on the sample ballots was correct except for the polling place to which a voter was directed.
