Sample Ballot Errors
SUNPAPERS to run double truck correction! All Voters and Primary Candidates are surely aware of the error laden Sample Ballot which appeared in the Howard County TIMES/Columbia Flier and Baltimore Sun this week.
Brian Harlin, Central Committee Chairman, has contacted The Board of Elections to investigate the problem. He has been told and he has reviewed documentation assuring him that the errors are completely attributable to the Baltimore Sun.
The Board of Elections contracted with the Sun to compose and distribute the tabloid sized ballot. An electronic file was provided by the BoE to the Sun. Three proofs were submitted to the BoE, all of which were incorrect. Unfortunately, the Tabloid went to press before the corrections were completed.
The Sunday Sun will run a two page ballot correction on Sunday 9/10/06 in the Main Section. As of last proof, there are still errors and omissions. Corrections have been requested.
The BoE ballot, downloaded to each touch screen voting machine has been audited and appears to be correct. No machine problems are expected.
