More Than 118,000 Voters Left Off Rolls In One California County

Trump rallies California supporters fighting blue wave
Early Tuesday morning the county clerk's office became aware of a printing error that led to almost 120,000 county residents being inadvertently left off voting rolls which may have contributed to the large provisional ballot totals as those affected voters were asked to vote using a provisional ballot.
The names of more than 118,000 voters were omitted from Los Angeles County voter lists because of a printing error, election officials said on Tuesday.
Along with the governor's race, Californians had been voting in primaries for each senators and quite a lot of U.S. Home races.
"A total of 1,530 precincts of the County's 4,357 voting locations were affected in some way, with a total of 118,522 voters' names omitted", officials said.
County Registrar Dean C. Logan apologized for the inconvenience.
The county's registrar-recorder's office says registered voters can cast provisional ballots in Tuesday's primary election.
Provisional ballots are counted in the election returns once their registration is confirmed. "Voters ought to be assured their vote will probably be counted".
Officials say they are still working to identify what caused some names to not be included on printed lists of voters.
"I'm calling on @LACountyRRCC to keep the polls open longer because of the unprecedented number of voters left off the voter rolls". "You've got the fitting to vote".
The error caused confusion at some polling places.
But former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is locked in a fierce primary fight for the number-two spot in the California gubernatorial race, called for polls to remain open longer as a result of the snafu.
Past election records show that on average 85 to 90 percent of provisional ballots are determined to be valid and counted, according to the Registrar-Recorder's office.
The state's "jungle main" takes the highest two votegetters in an open main. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has been projected by The Associated Press to advance as the top finisher.
Villaraigosa was in a distant third as of 10:35 p.m. with 11.three % of the vote, based on the state's polling numbers. Newsom and Cox stood at 34.2 percent and 26.5 percent, respectively.
Paul Ryan contradicts Trump's claim that FBI planted a 'spy'
The statement specifically notes certain questions raised by Speaker Ryan, but does not disclose what these questions were. The FBI was looking into Russian interference in the U.S. election and that line of inquiry led them to Trump, he said.
