This Is Silly

Error spells trouble on city ballots.

LEOMINSTER - The city must dispose of almost 3,000 ballots for the upcoming election because state officials misspelled Leominster.

The Sentinel & Enterprise discovered the spelling mistake Thursday, four days after the ballots arrived in City Hall from the State Elections Division

About 2,700 ballots, which are now spelled "Leominister," will be reprinted today, according to Brian McNiff, a spokesman for the Secretary of State's Office.
