A story from ABC 15 states the Maricopa Elections Department put out a voter ID document with "8 de Noviembre" listed as the election date. In English, the same document gives the correct date, November 6.
The Maricopa County Elections Department mistakenly listed the wrong date of the upcoming general election on an official government document.
The error appears on a document containing a voter ID card.
In addition to the ID card, the piece of paper it comes in lists other information such as important election dates.
In the corner of the document, it says November 6th in English but in Spanish it reads 8 de Noviembre, the 8th of November.
The Election Department says the error is only on "documents distributed over the counter," not those mailed to homes, but ABC News hasn't confirmed that.
Either way, how do you put two different election dates on the same line, one in English and one in Spanish? This isn't a shrug-your-shoulders, mistakes-happen kind of problem. It's either a serious error or, worse, an illegal attempt to confuse Spanish-speaking voters.
