This just in from Maricopa County in Arizona.

The county's election department admitted to an error on voter cards. According to a report by ABC 15, here is what happened:

The Maricopa County Elections Department mistakenly listed the wrong date of the upcoming general election on an official government document.

The error appears on a document containing a voter ID card. 

In addition to the ID card, the piece of paper it comes in lists other information such as important election dates. In the corner of the document, it says November 6th in English but in Spanish it reads 8 de Noviembre, the 8th of November.

Election day is November 6th not November 8th.

The report also says that according to Maricopa County, the cards affect only about 50 cards. Yeah, right. This is Joe Arpaio country. The English date is ok but the Spanish date is not? And it only affected 50 cards? We say #NoMames.
