YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - A city clerk in Michigan says up to 650 people may have received absentee ballots without instructions.

Ypsilanti City Clerk Frances McMullen says letters will be sent to those people. She says the city has received at least two complaints from residents who said they received absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 election without marking instructions.

McMullen says a former assistant clerk was in charge of mailing some ballots and an intern involved later indicated she hadn't been told to place instructions in of envelopes.

McMullen said in an email Tuesday that she will be sending instructions to the 650 people who received ballots before the assistant clerk left to take another city job.

The city has sent out more than 1,000 absentee ballots.
