Peoria City Council candidate Ken Krieger’s name was not on ballots sent out last week to more than 8,500 residents. County officials scrambled to fix their error by mailing out replacement ballots this week, but his name once again was left off.
“All I wanted to be was on the ballot,” Krieger said. “I understand that mistakes can be made but when it happens twice, it’s just trampling on a person’s constitutional rights.”
The repeated omission has forced Peoria officials to call an emergency city council meeting today so council members can decide what to do next, Deputy City Clerk Linda Blas said. What that decision could be is unclear.
