Replacement Page to Be Mailed Out to Registered Voters

Cathy Darling Allen, County Clerk/Registrar of Voters, announces that County Voter
Information Guides being delivered to registered voters contain a printing error in the title of Measure A.

The page number of this error varies by the type of book each voter was mailed; there are 20 varieties. Only the title information is incorrect; the other information in the guide and the official ballots are correct.

The county elections office will be mailing a replacement page to every voter (102,000) in the coming days.

A notice of the correction and the replacement page can be viewed at our website at:

We are very sorry for the error and apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

For further information about voter registration, vote-by-mail voting, or this election, go to or contact the Shasta County Elections Department at 225-5730 located at 1643 Market Street, in the Market Street Promenade

    Not a huge expenditure to mail 100,000+ replacement sheets—bulk mail is cheap. But including staff time, paper and envelopes, printing and stuffing, I wouldn’t estimate it was less than $10,000. That’s a costly proofreading error.

    Also, a Notice of Correction should point out exactly what was in error, and the substitute language.

    Been there, done that.
