Error Found in Mayer Water District Ballot Language 

Registered voters within the Mayer Domestic Water Improvement District (DWID), or individuals that own property within the district received ballots last week with an error in the ballot language.

The portion of the ballot for the Mayer DWID Governing Board read, “VOTE FOR NOT MORE  THAN 3.” The ballot should have read, ‘VOTE FOR NOT MORE THAN 2.”  

Because the ballot was printed with incorrect instructions to vote for three (3) candidates, the  Yavapai County Elections equipment will accept up to three selections and NOT invalidate the vote.  

Normally, if a race on the ballot is completed with more than the intended number of selections made, that race is invalidated on the ballot. The rest of the races on the ballot remain valid. In this case an exception will be allowed to accommodate up to three votes in the  Mayer DWID election. 

Over the next few weeks, the County and Mayer DWID will be working together to take all necessary steps to ensure an accurate election result.
