Further issues with mail-in ballots has surfaced, this time in Brooklyn, New York. New York City's Board of Elections acknowledged that almost 100,000 Brooklyn voters received mislabeled return envelopes that had the wrong addresses and names.

Citing "mass confusion" over the ballots, City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer blasted the Board of Elections.

"People were already not trusting this process and they were already not trusting the Board of Elections to count the ballot right," he told the New York Post. "This apparent typo just has everyone confused and believing these are invalid ballots. It's absolutely outrageous that when everyone is watching them, they still screw up the most basic thing, which is printing the ballot correctly."

🔦 The issue in Brooklyn follows an incident in Virginia where 1,400 voters received two absentee ballots each and another in Queens where voters who had never served in the armed forces had received military mail-in ballots.
