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.

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.
