Officials say they were told about an incorrect zip code on a voter’s card on Saturday. They began investigating and then on Tuesday, more errors were found.

Some cards also had the wrong Marion County Commission district number listed.

Election office officials determined the issue was not in their records but had occurred when the documents were printed.
