DC Voter Received Misprinted Absentee Ballot

Board of Elections Warns Voters About Error

WASHINGTON -- Incorrectly designed ballots may have been sent to District voters, according to a D.C. Council member.

At least one voter received an absentee ballot that omits the names of Christina Culver and Jack Evans, the Ward 2 candidates for council, Mary Cheh's office said Friday. That ballot also lists the Ward 6 Board of Education seat instead of Ward 2.

The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics is taking responsibility for ordering the flawed ballot and said Sequoia Voting Systems, the election contractor, should have prevented the ballot from being mailed.

Officials from Sequoia will notify the council if other misprinted ballots were sent. The Board of Elections will contact voters to make sure they received proper ballots.
