PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A search tool has been launched for voters in Allegheny County to be able to check and see whether or not they received an incorrect mail-in ballot for the upcoming election.
On Wednesday, the Allegheny County Elections Division announced that more than 28,000 incorrect ballots were sent out and that corrected ballots would be sent to those affected by the error.
Midwest Direct, the company hired by the county to mail out the ballots, blames a computer glitch for the errors. Midwest Direct is also being blamed for ballot issues in Westmoreland County and Ohio.
New ballots, marked “corrected ballot,” were mailed on Thursday.
