AUBURN HILLS, Mich., (WXYZ) - The City of Auburn Hills announced hundreds of missing absentee ballots have yet to be delivered to residents.
In a press release sent out Monday morning the city says that more than 800 absentee ballots are unaccounted for.
The issue came to the attention of Auburn Hills City Clerk Terri Kowal last week when less than half of the 1455 ballots mailed out on October 3 were returned.
“We have no way of knowing how many residents didn’t get their absentee ballots but it could be as high as 800,” said Kowal. “We do know that at least 650 did receive them because they have been returned.
The city says they have been diligently following up with the post office but have yet to find a solution.
Residents who requested a ballot but have not yet received one are encouraged to call or email.
The City Cler's office is open:
