US Ballot Papers Miss Out The 'l' in Public


According to a report we have seen on the internet, election officials in Grand Haven, Michigan, have been left with red faces when the word public appeared on a ballot paper as pubic.

The word public appeared 6 times on the paper, only once misspelled.

170,000 ballots are affected and they are being reprinted at a cost of $40,000.

The ballot was for a proposed amendment to the state constitution which would ban some forms of affirmative action.

It is possible that 6 people missed the mistake when they proofed the papers before it went to the printers the first time.
