Nearly 7,000 New Jersey Residents Receive Ballots for Wrong District

'It's going to be a very, very sad day for our country...'

Nearly 7,000 New Jersey residents received mail-in ballots meant for a different congressional district, according to NorthJersey.com.

Teaneck residents found that the wrong ballots had been delivered to them on Monday due to an error by a private mailing company, said Bergen County Clerk John Hogan.

Local officials plan to remedy the issue by mailing the residents new ballots with the correct information and urging everyone to shred the old ones.

But in a separate incident this week, also in the Republican-dominated Bergen County, a resident reported that he had discovered 300 pounds of mail—including an estimated 200 ballots—dumped behind a local bank.

The postal service acknowledged that it was looking into the matter and that the mail eventually was delivered, NJ.com reported.

“This matter was then turned over to our Office of Inspector General,” said USPS spokesman George Flood. “We are unable to comment further at this time.”

New Jersey is one of the states that decided to move ahead with largely mail-in elections back in March. Since then, the state has had a host of problems.

Allegations of vote fraud upset May’s municipal elections, and nearly 40,000 ballots had to be rejected in the July primary for various reasons.

Similar errors have been popping up across the country as Democratic officials encourage mail-in voting.

About 100,000 absentee ballots with the wrong names and addresses printed on the return envelopes were sent to voters in Brooklyn, N.Y., in late September.

And this week, an as-yet undetermined number of voters in Franklin County, home to Ohio’s capital, received the wrong absentee ballots, while 2,100 voters in Los Angeles were mailed ballots missing the presidential race.

President Donald Trump and the rest of the GOP have raised concerns about mail-in voting for the past several months, arguing that the risk of voter fraud and mismanagement threatens to undermine the integrity of our elections.

“If you do universal mail-ins with millions and millions of ballots, you are never going to know what the real result of an election is,” President Trump said in August. “It’s going to be a very, very sad day for our country.”

Democrats have denied that voter fraud is a problem, but the Heritage Foundation compiled a report last year documenting more than 1,000 voter fraud cases that resulted in 938 convictions across 47 states.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation also determined earlier this year that nearly 28 million mail-in ballots have gone missing over the last 10 years.
