On Wednesday Julie Bustamante, Lassen County Clerk and Registrar of Voters, detailed an error on the November 6th ballot that affected 29 voters on two streets in the valley.
“An error was made in our addressing file,” explained Bustamante in a press release issued by her office on Wednesday, “The streets of Belfast Road and Laurel Lane were inadvertently placed in the wrong Fire District. Because of this, 29 voters were sent ballots that contained the Susan River Fire District race in error. However, this error has been corrected.”
According to Bustamante corrected ballots were sent to these voters with a letter of explanation.
Voters were requested to destroy the original ballot containing the Susan River Fire District race and asked to vote the corrected ballot.
“If by chance the voter has already voted and mailed their ballot, “said Bustamante, “it is being set aside and will be replaced with the corrected ballot.”
