(WXYZ) — Did the absentee ballot you thought you mailed out pop back into your mailbox?

Here's a possible explanation as to why.

According to the Michigan Department of State, the United State Postal Service has been returning absentee ballots to voters "likely to due to a technology error."

The solution?

"USPS will do visual scans of absentee envelopes to ensure they are delivered correctly, however, if your ballot comes back to you, either place it back in the mail if time permits, or take it to your clerk’s office," the Michigan Department of State wrote in a tweet.
