118K names missing from voter lists in LA county

Primary ballots mailed; unaffiliated voters to participate for first time

Some voters arriving at their Los Angeles County polling places Tuesday were surprised to discover that their names were missing from the roster of eligible voters, a glitch that county officials attributed to a printing error.

Along with the governor's race, Californians had been voting in primaries for each senators and quite a lot of U.S. Home races.

The county's registrar-recorder's office says registered voters can cast provisional ballots in Tuesday's primary election.

County officials told the Times that 85 percent to 90 percent of provisional ballots are normally deemed valid and included in the vote totals.

About 2 percent of voters were affected by the error at 35 percent of voting locations, the board said. "We apologize for the inconvenience this caused you".

There are about 5.1 million registered voters in the county according to the county clerk's website which means about 10 percent of the county's potential voters have yet to have their votes counted.

Stephens has made the second week in Paris in five of her seven appearances and Keys is slowly coming to terms with the surface. Backed by fans who loudly chanted her first name between games, Halep went ahead 3-0 with the help of only one victor .

The story of the more than 118,000 voters in Los Angeles who were accidentally left off the voter rolls has jumped the shark.

"I'm calling on @LACountyRRCC to keep the polls open longer because of the unprecedented number of voters left off the voter rolls", Villaraigosa said in a tweet. "You've got the fitting to vote". "Please do not leave any polling place without voting through either a regular ballot or by requesting a provisional ballot".

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla has asked for a detail report to explain the errors, the Los Angeles Times reported. "Provisional ballots are counted in the election returns once your registration is confirmed".

The state's "jungle primary" takes the top two votegetters in an open primary. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has been projected by The Related Press to advance as the highest finisher.

Republican John Cox, who has the endorsement of President Donald Trump, has been projected by the AP as the second finisher, which would secure him a spot on the November ballot against Newsom.
