Ballot shortages reported in Oakland County; voters told to wait. (Detroit Free Press, 8/7/2018)
Voters in numerous communities across Oakland County were shocked Tuesday afternoon and evening when they tried to vote and were told, "Sorry! We're out of ballots." The shortage was blamed on an unexpectedly big turnout for the primary election, typically ignored by many voters, as well as on some voters creating "spoiled ballots" when they tried to vote for candidates of more than one party — a practice not allowed in Michigan primary elections.
