Tickets passed out at the first presidential debate misspelled Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s name.

“‘Souvenir tickets’ issued to the 350 students for the first Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump debate had one glaring error: Clinton’s name was spelled ‘Hilary,’ with one L,” reports New York’s NBC 4.

The official debate ticket did not have the candidates’ names.

Hofstra University — the host for Monday night’s debate — commented on the error.

Spokesperson Karla Schuster told NBC 4, “These tickets are not official tickets to the debate. They were printed at the last minute to create a souvenir for the students. We’ll be reprinting them for all those who won tickets.”
