Hundreds of California voters have reportedly had their party affiliation unexpectedly altered and county officials are blaming the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
The Sacramento Bee reported that at least 600 people have seen the changes in several counties including Sacramento, Santa Clara and Shasta.
Officials have reportedly linked the issue to the state’s Motor Voter program, which automatically registers eligible voters when they go to the DMV. The Bee reported that a rushed launch of the program in 2018 resulted in 105,000 registration errors.
