The error was part of a letter written by the absentee coordinator for the board of elections. The letter said the postmark date for ballots was April 22, but the correct date is April 27.

“Some voters may have received an incorrect date of April 22, 2020 in their ballot packet. We apologize for the error,” an announcement on the board of elections website.
