The Federal Voting Assistance Program on Tuesday corrected a deadline on its website for returning military ballots in Wisconsin.

Had this error not been changed, the votes of thousands of Wisconsin servicemen and women might not have been counted in this key swing state in November, MacIver News Service reports.

The FVAB website incorrectly stated ballots must be returned by Nov. 16. The actual deadline is 4 p.m. Nov. 9. Any military ballots received in that intervening week would not have been counted by local and state election officials.

"All Wisconsin absentee ballots are due by 4 p.m. the Friday after the election,” Reid Magney, a spokesman for the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, told MacIver News Service in an email. “The FVAP site was incorrect."

Ballots must be postmarked no later than Election Day, which is Tuesday, Nov. 6.

According to its website, FVAP provides U.S. citizens worldwide a broad range of nonpartisan information and assistance to help them participate in the democratic process. The organization also administers the federal responsibilities of the National Voter Registration Act.
