Over 400 Michigan Overseas Ballots Incorrectly Listed Jerry Cohn, Not Pence as Trump’s Running Mate

Over 400 Michigan overseas and military ballots incorrectly listed Jerry Cohn, not Mike Pence as President Trump’s running mate.

Jerry Cohn is the libertarian Vice President candidate running with Jo Jorgenson.

The name of Mike Pence was not even listed at all.

According to The Detroit News “Within a roughly two-hour time frame Tuesday afternoon, ballots downloaded from the state website to be mailed or emailed to those overseas “had an error in the presidential race impacting how candidates and running mates were listed,” according to an email sent from the state to clerks impacted by the error. ”

The Detroit news also notes that the issue has been corrected and “voters who received the incorrect ballot must be sent a replacement MOVE ballot ASAP.”

According to Breitbart, the error was made by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson who has endorsed Joe Biden and who spoke at the DNC.

During the DNC convention Benson said “And let’s be clear: there is absolutely zero difference between voting by mail and voting absentee. Millions of Americans have been voting absentee for decades. Donald Trump, his family, his staff — they all vote by mail. In fact, in states like Colorado, Utah, and Oregon voters have been voting by mail for years. Republicans and Democrats agree: it is safe.”

Tracey Wimmer, spokesperson for Benson said “If a voter does happen to return the incorrect ballot instead of the correct ballot, it will still count. The clerk will be instructed to duplicate a vote for Trump onto a ballot for Trump/Pence.”

This incorrect version of a ballot lists Jeremy Cohn as Trump’s running mate. Michigan has now corrected the error.
