Philadelphia-based apparel maker Urban Outfitters has retracted an erroneous guide for voters after it was discovered it contained misinformation about the documentation required to cast a ballot, according to the independent nonprofit ProPublica.
On Monday, Urban Outfitters' Twitter account posted the following (since deleted) tweet with a link to their guide. The company has 1.07 million followers.
Urban Outfitters, a frequent source of controversy, corrected its guide "immediately" when confronted and apologized for the error in a tweet.
We’re deeply sorry about the error in the UO Blog’s voting guide. It's been corrected & now includes a link to state-by-state requirements.— Urban Outfitters (@UrbanOutfitters) November 8, 2016
