PHOENIX (AP) - The Spanish language version of the Maricopa County ballot for the May 17 statewide special election contains a misprint that will require postcards to be mailed to 1.3 million early ballot recipients.

The problem is in the title for one of two referendums on the ballot. The language for a pension overhaul measure called Proposition 124 improperly says it involves education.

That’s the focus of the other measure, Proposition 123.

Maricopa County Recorder’s spokeswoman Elizabeth Bartholomew says new ballots are being printed for Election Day and additional early ballot requests.

The problem emerged Friday after early ballots were received by voters. The postcards will clarify the measure’s focus on pensions.

Maricopa County is already dealing with fallout from long lines and other problems at the March 22 presidential primary.
