The title says it all.

The Maricopa County Elections Department incorrectly lists the Election date on the document distributed with Voter IDs as November 8th. But, magically, this mistake only appears on the Spanish language information. Not on the English one. While the Elections Department is trying to downplay the importance of this, there could be very real implications for the AZ Senate race.

Maricopa County Elections Department admits error on date of general election on Voter ID Cards

Maricopa County is the largest county in the state of Arizona, home to nearly 6.5 million 3.8 million people--30% of whom are Latino. This is an outrage. Perhaps my cynicism is shining through, but I don't think this was an accident.

Not much of a diary, but I wanted to get this information out there. My apologies.

There is a video of the news report if you follow the link. I tried to embed it, but couldn't get it to work.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
