BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Lots of voters in Louisiana did not get the "I Voted" stickers on Election Day.

The Advocate reported that the Secretary of State's Office said in a Twitter message that "budgetary constraints" prevented the office from providing the stickers for Tuesday's voting.

Louisiana's 2016 "I Voted" stickers were an internet sensation, as they featured a George Rodrique blue dog and started selling on sites like eBay.

Some votes in Lafayette did receive the more traditional "I Voted" stickers, but many early voters did not.

After complaints showed up on social media, the secretary of state's office said local clerks of court were responsible for providing them. However, the Baton Rouge Clerk of Court's Office said the secretary of state's office was supposed to provide them.
