Voters casting ballots for state treasurer in Manchester were given the choice Tuesday morning of Republican Ross Garber or Democrat Deniss Nappier.
The problem is, the Democratic incumbent’s name is Denise Nappier.
The secretary of the state’s office said Nappier’s name was misspelled on all the voting machines in the city, but was spelled correctly on an sample ballot the town sent to the state.
“We’re not quite sure what happened there,” said Larry Perosino, a spokesman for the secretary of the state.
The mistake was noticed at about 8 a.m. and stickers with the correct spelling were placed over Nappier’s name in the voting machines.
All votes cast for Deniss will count for Denise, Perosino said
