Clerks were told to issue correct ballots and tell voters to ignore the erroneous ballot if they received one.
“If a voter does happen to return the incorrect ballot instead of the correct ballot, it will still count. The clerk will be instructed to duplicate a vote for Trump onto a ballot for Trump/Pence,” Wimmer said.
Cohen had some fun with the mistake.
“They better fix these ballots,” he tweeted. “I’d hate to help Trump’s chances.”
The city clerk in Livonia, Susan Nash, said her office hasn't downloaded any erroneous ballots, but she has heard about the problem.
“I think it’s embarrassing. ... It’s just one more thing for clerks to take care of," Nash told the Detroit Free Press.
