Typo discovered on La Salle County specimen ballot

Posted by wlpo on February 28, 2014

New ballots are on the way in La Salle County because of a typo.  The error was found this week after the specimen ballots were distributed. 

The alderman at-large question should read, “Shall Peru restrict the number of aldermen to six,” but instead of “restrict” is said “redistrict”. 

Peru City Clerk David Bartley says he takes responsibility for the mistake.  He says the error happened on the certification. 

La Salle County Clerk JoAnne Carretto says new ballots have been ordered, the absentee/early voting equipment, Election Day tabulators and the specimen ballot on the county’s website have been corrected.
