May 14, 2018 - Mariposa County Clerk Elections Department: It has recently come to the attention of our office that due to a printing error on our recently mailed vote by mail ballots, Mitchell White, candidate for United States Representative is listed with a Democratic Party Preference, even though he actually represents the Republican Party. At this time, we are conferring with Mr. White, along with the California Secretary of State and Mariposa County Counsel to determine the best course of action to take for all involved. No final decision has been made at this time.
Its has also come to our attention that there are several unsolicited posts being made on social media outlets that may contain incomplete information and therefore may also be misleading. Please rest assured that as soon as a course of action has been decided upon, the County of Mariposa will insure that its citizens receive the information directly. In the meantime, if anyone has any doubts, questions or concerns, it is strongly encouraged that they be directed only to the Mariposa County Elections Office.
Thank you for your patience, trust and understanding.
