EDS: Clients who used a Cronkite News story slugged BC-CNS COVID and Voting that moved Friday, July 17, under a PHOENIX dateline are asked to run the following correction. The error occurred in the eight and 13th grafs of the original story. A corrected version of the story has been posted here.
PHOENIX – A July 17 Cronkite News story about voting misspelled the name of Erika Flores, deputy director of communications for the Maricopa County Elections Department. The article also incorrectly states precautions elections officials are taking at the vote centers. The county will only require masks and daily temperature checks for staff and visitors at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center. At voting centers, poll workers will wear gloves, masks and face shields; the county will offer masks and gloves to voters, but officials will not require them for voters.
