Hoboken Voters Mailed Wrong Ballots!
“Vote Early and Often” is an old saying in Chicago politics. Today Hoboken voters may get the same chance thanks to a snafu at the Hudson County Board of Elections. Voters in at least two wards are reporting the county has sent them the WRONG vote-by-mail absentee ballots. People in the First Ward are getting ballots with the names of Second Ward candidates on them, and Fifth Ward ballots are being sent to Second Ward voters. Candidates are scrambling to make sure their voters vote for them, and not some candidate in some other ward.
Will the county send a second ballot with the correct candidates to the voters? If so, will they do anything to make sure the voters haven’t voted twice for candidates in two different wards? Will they double check all ballots to make sure people have voted correctly? Post here if you got the wrong ballot. Updates as they become available.
