Elections Department working to make sure mail-in ballots are correct 

The Elections Department has been working in overdrive to ensure any voter who received the wrong ballot for the June 8 primary gets the right ballot in time to vote.

Initially, John Arntz, director of the Elections Department, had estimated that as many as 1,500 absentee voters had received the wrong ballot in the mail. But after making calls Wednesday night and Thursday to voters they had identified as possibly getting the wrong ballot, it turns out no more than 600 — and maybe ever fewer voters than that — got the wrong ballot in the mail, Arntz said.

He said they have already received 10,000 absentee ballots returned from voters, and they are currently checking every ballot to ensure that every vote is counted and counted correctly.
