Democrat Michigan Secretary of State Misprints Trump Ticket on Ballots for Troops

The Michigan secretary of state misprinted the Trump line on ballots intended to be mailed to troops serving overseas, the Detroit News reported.

Jocelyn Benson, who has endorsed President Trump’s rival, Joe Biden, and spoke at the recent Democratic National Convention (DNC), made the apparent error. The ballot listed Jeremy Cohen as Trump’s running mate. Cohen is running for vice president on the libertarian ticket with Jo Jorgensen.

The name of the incumbent vice president, Mike Pence, was omitted altogether. Jorgensen’s line lacked a running mate, thus creating three errors on the ballot.

Over 400 incorrect ballots were downloaded from the secretary’s website by local clerks to be sent to voters. It is not clear how many were actually mailed.

The ballots were “meant to be mailed or emailed to Michigan residents living abroad under the Military and Overseas Empowerment (MOVE) Act,” the paper reported.

“Replacement” ballots will be issued to those who may have been mailed incorrect ones, according to the secretary of state’s office.

“If a voter does happen to return the incorrect ballot instead of the correct ballot, it will still count,” Benson spokeswoman Tracy Wimmer said.

“The clerk will be instructed to duplicate a vote for Trump onto a ballot for Trump/Pence.”

The secretary of state has endorsed Biden for president.

During the DNC, Benson pushed voting by mail.

“And let’s be clear: there is absolutely zero difference between voting by mail and voting absentee. Millions of Americans have been voting absentee for decades. Donald Trump, his family, his staff — they all vote by mail. In fact, in states like Colorado, Utah, and Oregon voters have been voting by mail for years. Republicans and Democrats agree: it is safe,” she said, according to ABC News.

In 2018, Biden endorsed Benson to be secretary of state.

“Jocelyn is a leader who will make Michigan proud and that is why I am supporting her,” he said.

The end times are here.
I wonder if this woman went to the Hillary Clinton School of "What Difference Does It Make?".

Who is responsible for proof reading this stuff? Maybe they should consider a job at McDonald's.

It's always the dems "making mistakes" for their own advantage! :shk:

There is significant difference and she knows it.

I'm voting IN PERSON on November 3.
Depends on the state.
Due to the fuehrer Murphy's its all mail in ballots here in NJ.
If you go in person its technically only a provisional ballot. So not even looked at unless the number are close.
I am half inclined to drop it off after filling it out at the county building though instead of mailing it.

I'm sure that person will lose their job, right?
Oh, I forgot that nobody ever loses their government job no matter what they do.

Something like this happened years ago while I was working on our local voting board. The country refused to issue those ballots to be included in the ballot count at the local precinct. The Judge of Elections and several other elected and unelected officials overseeing the election refused to sign the document verifying the election results because they did not have all the ballots needed to do that.

Complaints to State, Local and Federal elected officials proved totally useless.
