Nearly 29,000 incorrect ballots were sent to voters in a Pennsylvania county, according to local election officials.

Election officials in Allegheny County said new ballots are being sent out after 28,879 voters received ballots that had their individual information matched to the next voter's.

"The mailing by Midwest Direct is from a batch of 32,318 voters whose date of mailing shows in the state ballot tracker as September 28, 2020," officials said in a statement. "There were no issues with the county data, but a ballot image mapping error by Midwest resulted in individual voter's information being matched to the ballot for the next voter in that batch."

Officials said that the Elections Division would have a search function available on its website that allows voters to see if their ballot was part of an impacted batch.
