About 240,000 ballots have been sent out in Franklin County, where the state capital Columbus is located. The error means that one in five in the county has received the wrong ballot papers.
The county’s election authorities promise to send out the correct ballot papers within 72 hours. The error occurred on Saturday afternoon when someone changed a setting on a machine that places postal ballots in the envelopes, according to the election authorities in Franklin County.
On Friday, they were in the process of producing new ballot papers and informing all the affected voters, and informing them of the alternatives.
