Dozens Of Ballots Missing In Sarpy County

Sarpy County Election Commisioner Michelle Andahl says she is working with the Gretna Post Office to try and figure out why at least 50 residents in one neighborhood didn't receive their absentee ballots in the mail.

"We have never had an incident like this, where in a specific precinct or delivery area, that this number of ballots were not delivered to the household," Andahl says. 

She tells NewsRadio 1110 KFAB that while this is concerning that voter fraud is not a concern. "Because every ballot that is mailed out is sent in an envelope that has a bar code assigned to the ballot inside.  So there is not a possibility of two people even being able to send in a ballot."  The original ballots that were reported as not being received have all been canceled.

Andahl said they are working with the Gretna post office to identify any ballots that may not have been delivered in Gretna.  She tells NewsRadio 1110 KFAB voters who didn't receive the requested ballot can come to her office and sign an affadavit that voids the first ballot.  They will then be given a new one on the spot.

The last day to request a ballot by mail is Friday.
