Baltimore Ballot Has Wrong Date

Baltimore has mailed sample ballots with the wrong date for next month's primary election, reports AP.

The sample ballots, mailed this week, say the September 13 primary is on September 3. Elections director Armstead Jones Sr. tells The Baltimore Sun that a private printing company made the mistake, which appears in one place on the sample ballot.

The sample ballot was sent to nearly 360,000 registered voters. The correct date, however, does appear on other places in the mailing.

Jones says postcards be sent out next week explaining the error, and posters will be put in all precincts before September 3 noting the error and sending voters to early-voting sites.
