GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

As voters prepare to head back to the polls Genesee County is working to right a few issues with their ballots.

During pre-election testing the county uncovered occasional problems with the ability of some test ballots to be read by the tabulators that will be used on Election Day.

The Genesee County Clerk’s Office determined the issues were due to inconsistencies in the ballot printing process.

Because of that, all the ballots had to be reprinted.

While the replacement ballots have passed testing, some absentee ballots were mailed prior to the decision to re-print.

Replacement ballots are being mailed to voters, with the last going out no later than October 14.

The replacement ballots are identified by a ballot number printed in green at the bottom (below the perforation). The original ballots had the numbers printed in black.

The cost of reprinting the ballots, and re-issuing them is expected to cost taxpayers about $340,000.
