Regular readers (all two or three of you) might remember a post from a while back about some local voting problems, where voters received the wrong ballot but didn’t realize it until too late.
Well, I got an email over the weekend from the person who triggered the article that I saw. Apparently the foul-up was ultimately due to a mix-up in the forms you filled out to declare which ballot you wanted. The “Independent” and “Democrat” forms were the same color, making it easy to grab the wrong one.
Anyway, if you’re interested you can get a little more information here. Permalinks seem to be broken, so just scroll down to the March 6 entry.
