Utah: County Mails Over 13,000 Ballots with Missing Signature Line

Over 13,000 mail-in ballots sent to voters in Sanpete County, Utah, are missing the critical area for a signature, election officials confirmed this week.

FOX 13 reports:

Mail-in ballots in Utah are required to be signed by the person who is voting before the ballot can be counted.

[…] Voters are directed to sign the back of a perforated 2-inch by 4-inch section of their return envelope. […] The printer who made the error will soon be sending a notecard to voters with detailed instructions.
