The D.C. Council will hold an emergency vote to put Bernie Sanders' name on the Democratic primary ballot after the D.C. Democratic Party submitted registration paperwork a day late and a voter filed a challenge.
The D.C. Board of Elections determined the board cannot certify Sanders for inclusion on the June 14 primary ballot because the local Democratic party submitted his name, as well as Hillary Clinton's, one day after the legally binding deadline, sources closes to the board said.
A Democratic voter in D.C. filed a challenge against the Sanders campaign's registration. No complaint was filed against Clinton's registration. The period in which a challenge can be filed has passed.
Bonds said in a memo to Council Chairman Phil Mendelson proposing the vote that parties should be given 24 hours between when candidates register with parties and when parties must submit the registration information to the Board of Elections. Sanders' camp had until 7 p.m. March 16 to register with the D.C. Democrats, but the Board of Elections closed that day at 4:45 p.m.

Surprisingly, they have 46! Not a negligible number.
On the OP, I'm surprised someone didn't protest Hillary on the ballot just to balance this out a bit.
