SANTA FE (KRQE) — An error on ballots sent to roughly 29,000 retired workers has forced the New Mexico Public Employeeâ€™s Retirement Association to print and mail new election ballots.
Officials are estimating the error will likely cost the public retirement system about $20,000 for the election of a single board seat.
The error was a phrase that required those voting to certify they were "municipal" voters.
It should have said "retiree" voters.
