Error forces Burlington to reprint ballots

Posted: Updated:

Burlington will have to reprint all of its November election ballots after an error was discovered in the listing of candidates.

At the very bottom of the ballot, in the race for justice of the peace, five of the 15 Republican candidates were inadvertently omitted.

So city officials decided Monday they will have to print new ballots at a cost of about $10,000.

Over 400 people had already been issued early and absentee ballots. They will get new ones and will need to vote again.
