Arizona county gives wrong election date in Spanish voter cards - CNN.com

CNN) -- Arizona's Maricopa county listed the wrong date in the Spanish version of voter registration cards, a development likely to further complicate tense relations between local authorities and Latino residents.
The county's elections office says it mailed out nearly 2 million new voter registration cards. Only about 50 of the cards -- handed out over-the-counter at its offices -- had the error, it said.
Instead of November 6, the Spanish translation said the election would take place on November 8.
"The program has been updated so it reflects the correct dates in both English and Spanish," the county said in a statement.
A local rights group said the damage has already been done.

That's messed up.

But then why are their Spanish voter cards to begin with?
