To the Editor:

A note to Wilmington voters, a typographical error was discovered on the November 6 ballot with regard to the justice of the peace race. On the back of the ballot you will find seven candidates for justice of the peace and instructions to vote for not more than seven candidates. Listed as a candidate is “Elizabeth Reeve.” There is no such candidate. The ballot should have read “Franklin Reeve.” For any voter who intended to vote for Franklin Reeve for justice of the peace, the best suggestion to assure that vote is to use the write-in method. Simply write the name Franklin Reeve on any of the write-in lines provided in the justice of the peace race.
