KODIAK - The state Division of Elections sent Kodiak residents election pamphlets ahead of the Aug. 26 primary. The problem? They only sent pamphlets printed in Tagalog, a language widely spoken in the Philippines.
The apparent mix-up occurred at the printers. It was discovered when a Kodiak voter called the division, wondering why they also didn't get an English version.
The pamphlets contain information on the four statewide ballot initiatives on Aug. 26. The pamphlets do not have any information on the candidates running in primary races.
Division of Elections spokeswoman Shelly Growden expects pamphlets printed in English to be in voters' mailboxes sometime next week.
