State voter guide doesn’t say it endorsed Alex Padilla

When Californians receive their voter guides and sample ballots in the mail over the next few days, something will be missing, thanks to an error by the California Democratic Party. It forgot to tell local elections officials that it endorsed Sen. Alex Padilla in the June 7 primary, The Chronicle has learned.

“The party’s communication to the county registrars inadvertently did not include Senator Padilla’s endorsement for the primary election and once discovered could not be rectified,” the party said in an email to The Chronicle after being confronted with the error.

Padilla was diplomatic about the error Thursday.

“I just have to work harder to make sure the voters are aware,” Padilla told The Chronicle. “I believe the party will do what it can to communicate that broadly as well. But (it’s) just a reminder, I never take anything for granted.”
