TUCSON - About 190,000 postcards that were sent out by the Pima County Elections Department to remind voters of the upcoming primary have a misprint: they say the August 28 election is a general election, not a primary.
"Everything else on the card - where a person is supposed to go to vote, the date of theelection, the person's name, their mailing address, everything else is fine," said Elections Director Brad Nelson.
In spite of the error, poll workers have been instructed to accept the postcards as a piece of voter identification at the polls. The cards were sent out as a courtesy to remind voters of the upcoming election, he said.
"All the other information on there is accurate and pertinent for next Tuesday's election," Nelson said.
The General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 6.
