D.C. party officials called the problem a minor administrative dispute
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ name is not on the primary ballot in Washington, D.C., after the D.C. Democratic Party submitted registration paperwork a day late, News4 has learned.
The Sanders’ campaign, as well as Hillary Clinton’s campaign, submitted registration fees of $2,500 on time earlier this month in advance of the June 14 Democratic primary.
But the D.C. Democrats did not notify the D.C. Board of Elections until a day after the registration deadline of March 16, News4’s Tom Sherwood was first to report on Twitter.
A D.C. voter filed a challenge against the Sanders’ campaign’s registration. That challenge is expected to be heard in early April. No challenge was filed against Clinton’s campaign, sources said.
