RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - As of Monday, more than 635,000 absentee ballots have been cast in North Carolina. State data shows about 98 percent of them have been accepted, but that still leaves thousands of others with issues. Now voters have a chance to fix them.
The state is now directing county boards of election to notify voters about problems with their ballots so they can correct them.
Were going to push to get everything out as fast as we can. Weve got an entire team working on it, said Wake County Director of Elections Gary Sims.
He said the county is contacting about 600 voters. About half will receive a new ballot because they are missing a signature from a witness or assistant, or their envelopes arrived unsealed. Their first ballot will not count. The other half can address other ballot issues by signing a certification.
We are going to start by getting things in the mail to them - the explanation of why theyre receiving it - and then if theres difficulties after that, if we have phone numbers, if we have emails, were just going to do everything we can to try to get in touch with them, he said.
Voters who need to correct issues with their ballots are asked to return them as soon as possible.

And the ballots with “problems” all just happen to be from registered “Democrats”. Who would have known?
Officials promoting do-overs better hope ‘Rat voters haven’t changed their minds about voting for BiteMe...
“And the ballots with problems all just happen to be from registered Democrats.”
Don’t discount that for them, one of the “problems” that needs to be fixed is a democrat who mailed in a ballot that voted Trump and the GOP.
Also, why is an absentee ballot voter given special consideration over a voter who goes to the polling place, incorrectly fills out the ballot, and scans it into the machine with the error? That voter is not afforded an opportunity to correct the ballot submitted.
So what is the cure if they never sent in the ballot to begin with???
