PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A batch of ballots sent to voters from the Yavapai County Recorder’s Office have an incorrect return-by date stamped on the outside of the envelopes.

Mail-in ballots must be received by Election Day to count. But Recorder Leslie Hoffman says a keying error on 2,500 of the more than 100,000 mailed ballots incorrectly said Nov. 18 instead of Nov. 8.

Hoffman each voter who received the incorrectly stamped envelopes has been sent a letter. They tell voters to use the Nov. 8 return-by date on the yellow instruction sheet instead of the incorrect date on the envelope.

Ballots must be returned to a polling place by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Ballots should be mailed by Wednesday, Nov. 2, to ensure they are delivered in time to be counted.
