With election day right around the corner, errors are bound to occur. The most recent mistake: Arizona election officials in Maricopa County listed the wrong date on an official document printed in Spanish, according to the Phoenix New Times.
The document lists the general election date as November 8, rather than November 6, in Spanish. The correct November 6 date was written in the English translation, notes the paper. The mistake has some people in Maricopa County worried Spanish-speaking voters could show up on the wrong day. The paper also reports that some people believe it’s a voter suppression tactic.
“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 estimates that the document was sent to fewer than 50 people.
According to ABC News, the document was attached to updated voter registration cards voters had requested in person. There was no error reported for documents sent in the mail.
