118K Names Left Off Voter Lists in Los Angeles County

(From UPI)

More than 118,000 voters were left off the voting rolls in Los Angeles County for Tuesday’s primary, officials said.

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla has asked for a detail report to explain the errors, the Los Angeles Times reported. The county’s Board of Supervisors has called for an investigation.

About 2 percent of voters were affected by the error at 35 percent of voting locations, the board said.

Election officials became aware of the problem Tuesday and said in a statement the problem was due to a printing error.

“A total of 1,530 precincts of the County’s 4,357 voting locations were affected in some way, with a total of 118,522 voters’ names omitted,” officials said.
