Printing error omits 118,000 names from voting rosters in Los Angeles County

According to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder, the names of 118,522 voters were omitted from the roster that poll workers use to check in voters at their polling place, due to a random printing error.

The names of more than 118,000 voters were omitted from Los Angeles County voter lists because of a printing error, election officials said on Tuesday.

In addition to the governor's race, Californians were voting in primaries for both senators and a number of U.S. House races.

"If you were turned away, return to your polling place & exercise your right to vote by requesting a provisional ballot", Villaraigosa tweeted Tuesday evening.

But former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is locked in a fierce primary fight for the number-two spot in the California gubernatorial race, called for polls to remain open longer as a result of the snafu.

Previous election information present that on common 85 to 90 % of provisional ballots are chose to be legitimate and counted, based on the Registrar-Recorder's workplace. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has been projected by The Associated Press to advance as the top finisher. Newsom and Cox stood at 34.2 percent and 26.5 percent, respectively.
