Some King County voters mistakenly get two election ballotson October 22, 2012 @ 6:00 am (Updated: 8:34 am - 10/22/12 )
"What I found this morning were two ballots, the first one has my first and last name. The second one has my first, middle, and last name," Tracy Maxwell tells KING 5. "People are voting this weekend for the President of the United States, and there's mistakes happening."
But King County Elections officials say it's not a big problem because protections are in place to ensure only one ballot per person is counted.
Spokeswoman Jerelyn Hampton says Maxwell received two ballots because she had recently updated her voter registration information with her middle name, information King County apparently did not have in the system before.
"The first ballot that was issued to the voter was actually suspended and we issued a replacement ballot," said Hampton.
Anyone with questions about their ballot can call the King County Elections office during business hours, Monday through Friday, at 206-296-VOTE.
