Sussex County Board of Elections Administrator Marge McCabe claims over 1,600 ballots from the July primary election were found last week and quickly counted.
The ballots did not change the results of any races, McCabe said in a statement on Monday.
The New Jersey Herald reports 1,666 ballots cast in the July primary had been placed in a “mislabeled” bin.
Officials notified the state Attorney General’s office of the error and the remaining votes were counted.
According to the NJ Spotlight News, nearly 10 thousand mail-in ballots were rejected in the state’s primary election because they arrived after the deadline.
