Spanish speakers given wrong election date with Maricopa voter ID card

A story from ABC 15 states the Maricopa Elections Department put out a voter ID document with "8 de Noviembre" listed as the election date. In English, the same document gives the correct date, November 6.

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 the corner of the document, it says November 6th in English but in Spanish it reads 8 de Noviembre, the 8th of November.

3. Nothing to see here folks. Keep moving......

Maricopa County, Arizona, it could just be a big coincidence.
