(MARICOPA COUNTY, Ariz.) — Arizona election officials in Maricopa County admit they flubbed the date on an official government document that was printed in Spanish.
The document, which was attached to updated voter registration cards that were requested in person, lists the general election date as Nov. 8 in Spanish. An English translation on the document lists the correct date, Nov. 6.
“It’s an honest mistake. Between the time the voter [who caught the mistake] came in to our front counter to get her card and we were notified of the error, the mistake had been corrected,” said Yvonne Reed, spokesperson for the Maricopa County Department of Elections.
Reed estimated less than 50 people received the document showing the incorrect date.
