Maricopa County elections officials got the title of a ballot measure wrong in the Spanish-language version of the May 17 ballot. This could lead to greater taxpayer costs and potential litigation.
Maricopa County elections officials are scrambling to correct an error on the Spanish-language ballot for the May 17 special election.
The ballot, which has gone to more than 1.3 million households in the county, gives the wrong title for Proposition 124, which proposes changes to the state’s public-safety pension system. Instead, the Spanish version of the ballot depicts it as an education-finance measure, which actually is Proposition 123.
