South Carolina voters stuck with smaller stickers
Voters looking forward to proudly wearing the traditional red, white and blue "I voted" stickers Saturday might have been in for sticker shock. Several precincts handed out fingernail-sized stickers, about an inch smaller than normal.
Dorchester County Elections and Voter Registration Executive Director Joshua Dickard said the tiny stickers, provided by the Palmetto Project, are a result of a printing error. The Palmetto Project sent them a box of about 40,000 in June, and they're using them now because they're running out of the larger ones.
Small stickers are better than nothing, said Rose Brown, Berkeley County Voter and Registrations Office administrative specialist. Berkeley hasn't handed out stickers in the last few elections. "We have to use what we were sent by the state," Brown said. "They're free."
