LETTER FROM JASON VANDERSTELT, NC CLERK
NEWAYGO COUNTY BALLOT ISSUES
September  28, 2020

ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2020 AT 2:30 PM, IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT THE 78TH DISTRICT Judge race was not  included on the Newaygo County ballots. Judge H. Kevin Drake filed with the State Bureau of Elections to  run for the 78ᵗʰ District Court Judge on January 3l5t, 2020. Due to  unknown reasons, he was not  listed on the preliminary candidate listing from the State.  As of  September  26, 2020, approximately 6145 Absent Voter Ballots were sent to Newaygo County 
voters that had previously submitted applications for the November 3, 2020 General Election. Out of these ballots, only 41 have been returned to the local clerks.  The Newaygo County Clerk's Office has been in contact with the ballot printers and the correction has been made. New ballots are being printed at the time of this statement and shall arrive on Thursday, October 1, 2020 to the  local clerks.  Upon arrival of these new ballots, our clerks will be diligently working to reissue new Absent Voter ballots to all voters who have already been sent a ballot. These new ballots will be accompanied by a letter explaining the error and the voter's options. These options include:
 
If the voter has  not  already returned the original ballot, they are requested to vote and return 
only the replacement ballot and destroy the original ballot.
If the voter has already returned the original ballot, they have two  options:
•     Vote and return the replacement ballot even if they have already voted and returned their original ballot. The original ballot will not be counted.
•     If they do not vote and return the replacement ballot, their original ballot will be counted, but they will have no vote recorded for the 78ᵗʰ District Court race.
Every voter will have their vote counted. Newaygo County has procedures in place that will ensure only one ballot for each voter will be counted per State Election Laws, Policies and Procedures.
Sincerely,
Jason Vanderstelt Newaygo County Clerk
