Official: Absentee ballots unaccounted for in Auburn Hills

Posted: Updated:

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) - A city officials says more than 800 of the 1455 absentee ballots mailed out earlier this month were unaccounted for nearly two weeks before Election Day.

Auburn Hills City Clerk Terri Kowal says the issue came to light after less than half of the mailed ballots, which were sent out on Oct. 3, were returned as of Monday. "We do know that at least 650 did receive them because they have been returned," said Kowal. "Most voters immediately return their ballots so we have reason to be concerned about the 800 not returned, especially considering the numerous phone calls we are receiving."

Kowal says residents who have requested but not yet received an absentee ballot are urged to email or call the City Clerk's office as soon as possible. Kowals say the undelivered ballots will be re-issued as needed.
