Error creeps onto election materials

Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014 - 2 p.m. - A minor error appears on sample ballots and election pamphlets for the upcoming general election on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

The mistake reads, "Please vote YES on Measure F."

"That statement was not part of the original argument submitted by Measure K proponent Kevin Cann. It is a print error," county Registrar of Voters Keith Williams said. "The county Elections Office regrets any confusion this may cause voters."

The error is a small one compared to a mistake reported on vote-by-mail ballots in Berkeley this week. That mistake says the election takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 5--a day after voters go to the polls.
