Ypsilanti Voters May Have Absentee Ballots But No Instructions

As many as 650 voters in Ypsilanti may have received absentee ballots in the mail without any instructions.

Francis McMullen, the Ypsilanti City Clerk, says only two voters have contacted her office so far, but she wants all voters to have what they need.  So her team is mailing instructions to everyone who received an absentee ballot.

McMullen also posted the voting instructions to the city’s website and says voters can ask for a new ballot.  “I want the voters to know that if for any reason they feel that they may have incorrectly marked their ballot because they didn’t have instructions, not to hesitate to contact our office because they can get another ballot.”

McMullen says there was confusion among staff on the mailing, but she’s making sure this won’t happen in the future.
