Board of elections officials said they are working with the vendor, Ohio Envelope Manufacturing Company, to figure out how the error happened. According to a release, arrangement are being made with Huron County to properly return any ballots that were incorrectly sent back to Darke County.

“We certainly regret this error, but with the help of Huron County Board of Elections we can make a commitment to every impacted Darke County voter that their ballot will be counted,” said Darke County Director Paul Schlecty.

Darke County Board of Election said it encourages any voter who received the incorrect return envelope to drop their absentee ballot off at the Darke County BOE office instead of mailing it to Huron County.
