Some Flint voting precincts running out of ballots

Sources confirm to NBC 25 and FOX 66 that at least three voting locations in the City of Flint have run out of ballots.

According to the Genesee County Clerk John Gleason, some Flint locations are running out of Democratic ballots. One location we were able to confirm that ran out of ballots is at Grace Emmanuel, which is precinct 49. Flint City Clerk Inez Brown has now brought more ballots to that location.

Mayor Karen Weaver's office told NBC25 that, "The Mayor's Office is aware that some precincts ran out of ballots today. While Mayor Weaver has no control over the conduct of elections, she is very concerned. We have been attempting to reach the Clerk to find out why it happened. We do know additional ballots were provided to those precincts ASAP."


There may also be issues in other locations around the county.

We have a call into city and county officials and will update this story as we get new information.

If you reach a voting location and they are out of ballots, they are not supposed to turn voters away. Instead a photocopied ballot is supposed to be used and then hand-counted later.

The Secretary of State's Office has also put out a statement about precincts running out of ballots. They say no voter should leave or be turned away, but should wait for new ballots to arrive.
