Sheriff Joe’s Maricopa County, AZ, Gives Document to Spanish Speaking Voters With the Wrong Voting Day

October 17, 2012

The closer it gets to election day, more tricks will be unveiled. In Florida, some voters are receiving calls telling them that they can now vote by phone because of a new law. That is false. And now, in Maricopa County, Arizona, attached to voter registration cards is a document which falsely claims in Spanish that the upcoming election will take place on November 8th, however, the English translation gives the correct date: November 6th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABC reports:

The document, which was attached to updated voter registration cards that were requested in person, lists the general election date as Nov. 8 in Spanish. An English translation on the document lists the correct date, Nov. 6.

“It’s an honest mistake. Between the time the voter [who caught the mistake] came in to our front counter to get her card and we were notified of the error, the mistake had been corrected,” said Yvonne Reed, spokesperson for the Maricopa County Department of Elections.

When Maricopa County, Arizona claims it was an ‘accident’, one should second guess their assertion.

    In WI the GOP is printing the wrong address on absentee ballots apparently sent specifically to Democrats. They did the same thing in 2008. Our AG won’t do anything about it, “Honest mistake” he said. When they can’t win honestly, lie cheat & steal, it’s worked for them in the past.

    Shouldn’t the sheriff be prosecuted for intentionally interferring with people attempting to vote?

  • LawMom3

    Everything’s so “accidental” in Maricopa that they should be kicked out of office for incompetence if not for malfeasance.

    I love Sheriff Joe. He’s keeping the illegals from voting. Boo hoo for Obama.

      Hey, “Karen”? Are you really that so out of touch as a “low-information” voter. You have two very crass people with high visibility in your state of AZ–Sheriff Joe & your finger-wagging, broom flying gov. Brewer. I pray the day that AZ considers seceding from the union. One of the worst states in the country! Oh, let me remind you that M.R. was my incompetent absentee governor (MA) and well over 85% are voting AGAINST him. You see! We know his track record. We had the dubious distinction of being 47th in job creation while he was traipsing around the country during his 1st pres. bid and the elitist Romney & his “combat coward” clan (sons) think that it’s Mitt’s turn now to be president. I hope you have plenty of safety nets in place; you’re so going to need them if the Tea Party extremists & the R/R ticket gain any more traction. I hope your financial house is in order. Remember: “Life can turn on a dime” and for most of us, it usually does and your safety net will be full of holes!

    Typical Republican tactics. I would’ve been more surprised had they _not_ tried this.

    They just keep having these little “accidents” don’t they. Disgusting abuse of power. Isn’t Mittler proving you can’t win with lies and BS?
