Around 1,400 Virginia voters received two absentee ballots in the mail, according to multiple reports.
A problem with the printer resulted in employees accidentally sending out two ballots, Fairfax County election officials said according to the Washington Post.
A higher demand for absentee ballots amid COVID-19 concerns was also partially to blame, officials suggested according to the Post. (RELATED: Pelosi Touts $3.6 Billion Mail-in Voting Proposal, Calls It ‘Voting At Home’)
Despite the extra ballots being mailed, experts have confidence that widespread voter fraud is not an issue, Fox 5 DC reported. Still, the incident seems to have some worried about the process.
“This is what [Trump’s] concerned about and I am too and I wanted to bring it to your attention,” Jean Brennan, one of President Donald Trump’s supporters, told Fox 5 DC.
Trump has repeatedly raised concerns about mail-in voting, suggesting in June that it would lead to the “most corrupt election” in American history. He also spoke about the Republican Party’s lawsuits aimed at stopping the expansion of mail-in voting in June, saying that losing these lawsuits “puts the election at risk.”
