Thousands of Arizona election pamphlets misprinted

PHOENIX (AP) - Thousands of southern Arizona voters who may have received incorrectly assembled election pamphlets will get new copies before early voting starts.

Arizona Secretary of State spokesman Matt Roberts says the printing company was churning out roughly 68,000 pamphlets Thursday.

Voters in Tucson, Green Valley, Nogales and Sierra Vista reported getting pamphlets that are either missing pages or are erroneously put together.

According to Roberts, the printer mistakenly combined the English and Spanish versions. As a result, some Spanish-language pamphlets are missing pages.

Roberts says the complaints have come from areas that correspond to a delivery from the same truck, which was carrying more than 68,000 pamphlets.

California-based printer Trend Offset is expected to pay for the new copies.

Election publicity pamphlets outline and explain what to expect on a ballot.
