Trays were found undelivered at Eatontown mail processing center

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County election officials learned late Tuesday that a number of sample ballots for the April 27 school election had not been delivered.

The affected towns include Freehold Township, most of Marlboro Township and small pockets in Tinton Falls, Spring Lake, Middletown and Eatontown.

Some sample ballots were left behind at the post office.

All sample ballots were completed on time and delivered to the post office on April 19, a week before the election as is common practice. The office was alerted of a possible problem when voters began calling to say they had not yet received their sample ballot.

“We called the post office on Tuesday and we were told that trays of undelivered sample ballots had been discovered at the Eatontown processing center,” said Hedra Siskel, commissioner of registration/ superintendent of elections. “They were going to mail them on Tuesday in hopes of reaching voters by Wednesday.”

The U.S. Postal Service is conducting an investigation, Siskel said.

Yesterday, the Monmouth County Department of Public Information issued an urgent notice to the Asbury Park Press, which assisted by posting on the newspaper’s website a link to the county’s website where all of the sample ballots could be found.

The Board of Chosen Freeholders has authorized county counsel to work to recoup money spent on postage.
