Difference Between Issued and Raw Ballots

May 16, 2012 – We post a lot of information on voter registration and ballots issued and returned. One of the common questions we receive is related to the difference between ballots that are issued versus the raw count we post of those mailed. When a voter requests a ballot we “issue” it in our system, which is a single ballot for a single voter. There is a lag between the time it is issued and the time it is mailed (generally less than 24 hours). In addition, some ballots are damaged during the mail preparation process and must be reprinted. This is why there is always a difference between the actual ballots mailed and those issued in the system.
