Arizona county gives wrong election date in Spanish voter cards | CNN

By Ed Payne and Michael Martinez, CNN

(CNN) -- Arizona's Maricopa county listed the wrong date in the Spanish version of voter registration cards, a development likely to further complicate tense relations between local authorities and Latino residents.

The county's elections office says it mailed out nearly 2 million new voter registration cards. Only about 50 of the cards -- handed out over-the-counter at its offices -- had the error, it said.

Instead of November 6, the Spanish translation said the election would take place on November 8.

"The program has been updated so it reflects the correct dates in both English and Spanish," the county said in a statement.

A local rights group said the damage has already been done.

"It's a mistake that should not have happened," Petra Falcon, the executive director of Promise Arizona in Action, told CNN affiliate KNXV-TV. "To know that there's information out there that's wrong, it's going to take a lot of work to make sure that people know the correct date."

Arizona County Lists Wrong Election Date on Spanish-Language Voter Documents | TIME

By EMMA O'CONNOR | October 18, 2012

Arizona’s Maricopa County is quickly trying to ensure that all its residents know the correct date of Election Day. Officials are concerned some voters could show up two days late — based on information the county sent out. In June, the county’s elections office started distributing Spanish-language voter registration cards that listed the wrong date for the 2012 general election, CNN reports.

The voter ID documents in question listed the correct date of Election Day, November 6, for those reading the English section, but listed it as November 8 in Spanish. In an October 16 press release, the Maricopa Recorder’s Office said elections officials mailed out 2 million new voter registration cards, and only those that had been handed out in the office had the date error. Based on figures from previous years, the office estimates that it gave out 50 or so erroneous cards.

Although the county said in the statement that the mistake had been corrected, CNN notes that many in the local Latino community are still outraged. “It’s a mistake that should not have happened,” Petra Falcon, the executive director of Promise Arizona in Action — a nonprofit that encourages civic participation among Latinos and young people — said to KNXV-TV. “To know that there’s information out there that’s wrong, it’s going to take a lot of work to make sure that people know the correct date.” Maricopa County is Arizona’s largest, containing 3.4 million people within its borders, including Phoenix, the state’s capital and largest city. According to 2011 Census estimates, 30 percent of the county’s residents are of Hispanic origin, and 20 percent speak Spanish at home.
