Ballots misprinted at St. Anthony polling place

Kansas City election officials have confirmed that ballots at one Northeast polling place were misprinted and left off both the Sheriff and Prosecutor's races.

Shelly McThomas, director with the Kansas City Election Board, said this morning that both high-profile races on the Democratic ballot had been accidentally left off. The error was attributed to a computer and human error.

McThomas said that only 58 people had voted before poll workers noticed the error.

"We caught it early, but not early enough," she said. Election board officials are using the registration rolls to track down those voters who got the misprinted ballots and trying to see if they can vote provisionally in those two races.
