Ballot errors

City Secretary Mari Acosta, left, and Val Verde County Clerk Generosa “Janie” Gracia-Ramon, right, discuss the Nov. 3 ballots after errors were discovered on them. The ballots are being reprinted, but the hiccup will delay the mailing of ballots to voters who requested them by about a week.

Ballots for the November General Election here are being reprinted after errors were detected on those ballots, and that will delay by about a week the mailing of ballots to voters who requested them, Val Verde County Clerk Generosa “Janie” Gracia-Ramon said Thursday.

Ramon, who runs the general elections for the county, this year was also contracted to run the city, school district and hospital district elections. In an interview Thursday, Ramon said she received the sample ballots and the ballots for the Nov. 3 election from the printers on Sept. 25.
