Almost 12,000 voters in Montgomery County mailed notice with incorrect polling locations

Montgomery County has confirmed that almost 12,000 voters in 11 precincts in Montgomery County were initially sent a notice that included incorrect information about their polling location. In the coverage area, this included one precinct in Plymouth Township (2-1) and three in Whitemarsh Township (Middle 4, Middle 5, and West 3). learned about this issue on October 19th and on October 20th we asked via social media to be sent examples. Some voters noted that they received the incorrect and correct mailers on the same day. So if there were three voters in a household, they received six envelopes at the same time.

From the county’s statement:

Voters living in 11 precincts in Montgomery County initially received a letter advising them of an incorrect polling location for the November 3 General Election. The County’s printing vendor inadvertently sent the letters to approximately 11,715 voters in those 11 precincts before new locations were approved by the Board of Elections. Once the error was realized, a corrected version of the letter was immediately mailed to those voters. 

The County made every effort to maintain the greatest number of polling places in their original locations for the General Election. Eighty-three polling locations were moved due to some facilities being unavailable on November 3. The County will have 298 polling locations for the General Election
