Sanders' Name Might Be Missing From Ballot Because Of DC Democrats
D.C. Democrats say if there's an issue, legislation could be created to fix it.By Eugene Daniels | March 30, 2016
The D.C. Democratic primary ballot could be missing one vital thing: Bernie Sanders' name. According to WRC-TV, the Vermont senator was left off the ballot because D.C. Democrats submitted registration paperwork a day late.
So here's a breakdown of how we got here. Both Sanders and his rival Hillary Clinton submitted everything to make the ballot earlier this month. And according to The Washington Times, the party turned in all the paperwork to the D.C. Board of Elections on the last day at 7 p.m., but the offices close at 4:45 p.m.
Anita Bonds, the D.C. Democratic Party chairwoman, says extended hours for the submission had already been allowed. And yet, reports say Sanders' name is currently missing.
