EXCLUSIVE: Nassau Board of Elections sending out new voter information cards after printing error
A mix-up in Nassau County had some voters concerned.
News 12 has received multiple calls from residents about a mistake on the cards they received in the mail confirming their polling place and other information for this year's general election.
The Democratic Commissioner on Nassau's Board of Elections tells News 12 there was a printing error by the vendor who made the cards.
The cards list the political party for all residents in the county as "Democrat."
"It makes me angry, it upsets me, because it makes me feel like we are not being heard," says Syvie, of Farmingdale who says she is a registered Republican.
Democratic Commissioner of the Nassau County Board of Elections released a statement saying in part, "No voter information was altered in our system - it was purely a vendor error that is quickly being rectified."
Officials say no changes were made to the official registered political party of the people in Nassau County.
"The voter rolls are accurate, these cards are inaccurate," says Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman.
He says a reprint will be sent in the mail with the correct political party of their registered voters. He hopes the reprint will contain a written explanation of what happened.
The mailer was printed by Phoenix Graphics in Rochester. They released a statement saying in part, "Phoenix Graphic Inc. made a human error on Voter Information Cards for Nassau County." The statement went on to say, "We have fixed the error and at no cost to taxpayers will deliver corrected Voter Information Cards as soon as possible."
Many of the incorrect mailers were set to be delivered Tuesday, according Blakeman.
News 12 reached out to the Nassau County Republican commissioner of the Board of Election and have not heard back.
