Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio The Utah County Elections Office wants to assure people no one will be able to double vote. This, after a couple of residents ended up receiving two absentee ballots in the mail.

We've all experienced printer paper jams, but this paper jam happened with the machine printing Utah County's absentee ballots. "For the volume it puts out, it's not something that happens very often," County Clerk Bryan Thompson said.

Thompson says during the jam the machine double printed around 20 ballots. They thought they caught them, until a resident called in wondering why he received two. "There's a quality control system because we all are human; mistakes are made," he said.

Thompson says they've double checked the system, and everything is working properly. He says if a person did send in more than one ballot, the scanners would alert them and only count the first ballot.
