A county board of elections in upstate New York said it would take quick action after being informed that it had made election ballots that misspelled President Barack Obama's name.

The Utica Observer-Dispatch reports that sample ballots printed on the Oneida County Board of Elections website were missing the 'C' in the President's first name.

According to Fox News, the newspaper said it informed Election Commissioner Pamela Mandryck about the error on Friday.

She said that templates sent recently to a printer also contained the error, but she added that they would be retrieved and corrected in time for election day, the report added. (ANI)
