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.
