The Yolo County Elections office on Friday, issued a statement that acknowledged that of the 115 thousand Vote-by-Mail ballots mailed this week, 371 households / 581 registered voters countywide received a ballot containing an incorrect local race or measure.
According to their release, “This error occurred due to a transitioning of data systems, where not all streets were correctly carried over into the appropriate precinct as expected.”
“Within hours of confirming a potential error, the Yolo County Elections Office determined the number of impacted voters and households and is implementing a plan to correct the problem. This plan includes expediting to all impacted voters newly issued precinct ballots and voter information guides along with a letter describing the error,” the release stated.

The office also indicated, “Unique to Davis, 90% of the registered voters impacted live in the Covell Commons Condos and the 8th and Wake Apartment complex. Efforts are underway to directly contact the property management entities associated with these properties.”
“Any voter contacted by our office who received a ballot with incorrect contests should discard that ballot and fill out and return the new one. If a voter already filled out and mailed back their originally received ballot, we will cancel that ballot once the new one is received. This will ensure that no voter is able to vote twice,” they added.
