IL candidate name misspelled as 'Rich Whitey'

CHICAGO Possibly making matters worse, about half the wrong ballots are in African-American neighborhoods.

His name is actually Rich Whitney. He's the /*Green Party*/ candidate for governor.

But on 500 electronic voting machines, the "N" was left off on the page where voters review their picks.

The elections board says the problem will be fixed, but several thousand ballots have already been cast.
