Missing mail ballots in Franklin County

Posted: Updated:

Recently the Franklin County Auditor says she's been getting phone calls from people saying they haven't received their voter ballot in the mail yet.

 It's common to have a couple of late ballots, but early this week the number of calls reached 75, and hundreds more may be affected. Auditor Zona Lenhart says it's something that's never happened before.

 After looking into the problem workers found out the missing ballots are either due to a printing error or a miss placed tray at the mail handling facility. She says what is concerning is that a tray holds about 300 ballots, but she adds not to worry, a lost ballot does not mean someone else can use it

If you live in Franklin County and don't have a ballot at this point you can call the Auditor's Office at 545-3538 for a replacement ballot.
