Wrong Ballots in Florida

Dozens of voters in Lake County, Florida, were sent the wrong vote-by-mail ballots by local officials, according to WFTV, a local television station. Some residents of the Royal Harbor neighborhood were sent ballots for races in the nearby town of Sorrento, which is in a different congressional district and has different local government races. The county's supervisor of elections told the TV station that the incorrect ballots would be replaced.
