PHOENIX - A spokesperson for the Maricopa County Elections Department admits they once again gave voters the wrong date of next month's election.
Yvonne Reed confirms to ABC15 that bookmarks distributed by the elections department incorrectly listed the date of the general election in Spanish as November 8.
The flip side of the bookmark correctly lists the date in English as November 6.
Reed tells ABC15 the bookmarks were distributed at the three election counters throughout Maricopa County and that the department has no way of knowing exactly how many people received the bookmarks.
Randy Parraz, President of Citizens For A Better Arizona, says the blame lies squarely with Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell.
"It shows she's incompetent and not qualified," said Parraz.
ABC15 exposed a similar mistake by the Maricopa County Elections Department last week on a voter ID document.
The document, like the bookmark, also listed the date of the general election in Spanish as November 8, but November 6 in English.
"The moment you found the first problem, there should have been an inventory," said Parraz, referring to the voter ID document. "Anyone with common sense would have done an inventory on everything that's been printed to catch this."
"The fact you brought [the bookmark] to her attention shows [Purcell] doesn't know what she's doing," said Parraz.
Purcell declined ABC15's request for an interview Monday.
Reed, Purcell's spokesperson, says the error was not intentional but rather simply yet another mistake.
