Error at Printing Facility Affects Some Duchesne County Ballots

A printing error has caused a delay for some Duchesne County residents as they wait for a correct ballot to come in the mail. The state House District 69 race between Christine Watkins and Jae Potter was not included on the ballots that was sent out to voters in 10 Roosevelt precincts thanks to a problem at the printing facility. This includes Roosevelt precincts RO12, 22, 32, 42, 52, 62, 71, 72, 82, and 91, according to Duchesne County Clerk Auditor JoAnn Evans. Ballots mailed out to voters in Duchesne and Myton are correct and not all Roosevelt precincts vote in the House District 69 race. If you live in any of the Roosevelt voting precincts listed, you should check your ballot and destroy it if it does not have the House District 69 race included. Corrected ballots were mailed out on Tuesday to the affected voters. “The Duchesne County Clerk-Auditor's Office understands that some voters may have already returned their completed ballots,” shares Evans. “The sealed ballots already received from the affected Roosevelt precincts have been marked to indicate that they were received before the corrected ballots were mailed out. A system has been established to allow poll workers to ensure no one is able to vote twice, and that only correctly printed ballots are counted.” Questions about which precinct you live in can be directed to the Clerk Auditor’s Office at 435-738-1101.
