Williams County Board of Elections on Friday said it is working to correct a mistake on ballots affecting voters in West Unity and Stryker.

The board said it inadvertently left the township tax levies off these ballots.

The board “is currently working on sending supplemental ballots to all voters who have previously voted in person, or have requested an absentee by mail ballot,” the board said in a news release. “These ballots will be mailed from the Board of Elections Office no later than end of business Monday, Oct. 19, 2020. Your original votes and ballots will be counted as normal. These ballots will ONLY contain the tax levies that were to be placed on the ballot.”

Voters should return the supplemental ballots via mail, using the board of elections drop box (available 24/7) outside of the office at 1425 E. High St. Suite 104, Bryan, or return ballots in person during office hours.

“We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion this has caused,” the release stated. “If you live outside of these precincts, your ballots were not affected. To check to see if you live in the West Unity or Stryker precincts, visit: www.williamscountyoh.gov/151/Voter-Information-and-Public-Records.”

Any with questions or concerns may contact the board of elections at 419-636-1854.
