With Election Day two weeks away and voting underway in several states, some counties are scrambling to handle a deluge of requests for absentee ballots.
In New York City, for instance, which is expected to receive requests for millions of mail ballots, nearly 100,000 voters received defective ones. And in Ohio and Pennsylvania, dozens of counties that had contracted with a Cleveland mailing company to print and ship ballots faced delays or errors after the firm was overwhelmed by tens of thousands of requests.
In Pennsylvania, nearly 30,000 ballots sent to voters in Allegheny County, which includes Pittsburgh, went to the wrong addresses.
New York Times reporters writing about the election would like to hear from readers about problems they’ve faced requesting, receiving or submitting a mail-in ballot.
