The Arizona Democratic Party is calling for a meeting with the Maricopa County Recorder following yet another error in connection with the upcoming election. The wrong election date was printed on the mailer that comes with your voter ID that you punch out. The error was only made in Spanish, but some worry it will cause voters to show up on the wrong day. The recorder says it only affects a few dozen cards but others aren’t convinced it’s not more widespread. “We want to make sure no one’s vote is jeopardized in any way,” says Frank Camacho, Arizona State Democratic Party.
The Arizona Democratic Party isn’t happy about the Maricopa County Recorder’s latest blunder. The recorder’s office confirms the paperwork that accompanied some voter ID cards had the wrong election date printed in Spanish. The date is shown as November 8th, though the election is actually on Nov. 6.
The recorder’s office believes the mistake affects less than 50 of the more than 2 million voter ID cards issued. “We want to meet with them to talk about this find out how it happened and what steps taken to rectify the situation to make sure it wasn’t wide spread as we think it potentially could be,” says Camacho.
