Over 118,000 Registered Voters Were Cut Off From Rolls Because Of A Printing Error
A printing malfunction cut 118,522 voters’ names off of the rolls during the Tuesday California primary in Los Angeles County, according to a press release by the county clerk’s office.
“Our office is committed to ensuring every voter has a positive voting experience on Election Day,” Los Angeles County Clerk Dean C. Logan said in a Tuesday press release. “We apologize of the inconvenience and concern this has caused. Voters should be assured their votes will be counted.”
Voters who were cut off of the rolls were issued provisional ballots that will be counted once the voter’s registration can be confirmed.
Los Angeles County includes two battleground House seats in the state’s 25th and 39th districts. (RELATED: Republicans Come Out Ahead In California House Races)
A total of 1,530 out of 4,357 precincts were affected by the printer error. The press release did not say which precincts were affected. The process of verifying provisional ballots, however, may delay election results for local seats.
