PEKIN, Ill. — County officials in central Illinois said a computer glitch was to blame after some residents received up to eight voter registration cards recently.

Tazewell County Clerk John Ackerman said a printer that froze and got multiple orders to reprint in its queue. That led to duplicate cards printed, some of which were mailed, according to The (Peoria) Journal Star.

“I apologize for this mistake and for the inconvenience to the citizens and waste of resources,” Ackerman said.

A new printing process was expected to save around $6,000 this year, however after the glitch the savings was around $4,800.

The duplicate cards were mailed through post offices in Delavan, Hopedale and Goodfield.
