It has recently
come to the attention of the Mariposa County Elections that due to a printing
error on our recently mailed vote by mail ballots and County voter information
guides, Mitchell White, candidate for United States Representative is listed
with a Democratic Party Preference, even though he actually represents the
Republican Party. We have conferred with Mr. White, along with the California
Secretary of State and Mariposa County Counsel to determine the best course of
action to take for all involved.
all voters in Mariposa County should expect to receive information by US Mail
pertaining to this error in the near future. This mailing will be a half sheet
postcard that is white with red printing, and it will be an Official Election
Mailing. We ask that voters pay particular
attention to their mail for this in the meantime.
The timing of
the discovery of the error has allowed for the correction of all ballots that
will be at polling places on Election Day.
We will also have a sufficient supply of corrected ballots in the
Elections Office as soon as possible.
If you have immediate
questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Mariposa County
Elections Department at (209) 966-2007.
