D.C. Board of Elections sends new notices on special election

Hundreds of thousands of postcards sent to D.C voters can be tossed in the trash.

The D.C. Board of Elections has admitted that the notices of the upcoming special election have confused some voters about where and when people can vote. And so, they're sending out new notices with clearer information.

The original card listed only one place to vote: One Judiciary Square. But that should have said it's the place for early voting. On Election Day, voters can vote in their usual places in their precincts.

Although he's resending the card, Clifford Tatum, director of the D.C. Board of Elections says "It wasn't a mistake, w'ere just preparing a clarification."

Tatum says the cost of sending the new postcards will be about $30,000.
