Door-hangers contain wrong polling location

Campaign brochures placed on the doors of an unknown number of homes in Brentwood over the weekend contained inaccurate information about polling place locations.

The Contra Costa Election Department urged voters to refer to their sample ballots for accurate polling place locations. Voter may also call 925-335-7800 for information.

The door-hanger asks voters to say yes to Proposition 8, which would declare marriage to be a union of man and a woman.

But it also listed the voter’s precinct location, which was inaccurate in several and probably more instances, said Deputy Registar of Voters Candy Lopez. It’s unclear how many door-hangers were placed in Brentwood or elsewhere.
