Looks like the recent attention that Maricopa County in Arizona (the same county where Sheriff Joe Arpaio is for running re-election and the same county where over 36,000 new voters were registered to defeat America’s Toughest Sheriff) has finally gotten county recorder Helen Purcell to respond. After two errors that listed the incorrect Election Day date in Spanish voting materials had made the Internet and the national press, and after Purcell was issuing “no comment” yesterday about the second error, earlier the county issued a bilingual press statement that tried to clarify what happened.
Purcell admits errors were made, but not without vehemently denying that it was some part of a larger conspiracy. Not only were the wrong dates printed on voter materials, but there were also questions of whether a completed ballot “could not be delivered to the post office or the county by anyone other than the person named on the ballot.”
Incidentally, the Spanish version of the press statement about the errors? Also full of errors.
There oughta be a law. Or at least someone willing to enforce it.
