Canvass board makes ballot determinations


August 29, 2019

Fourteen mailed ballots were rejected Aug. 19 by the county's election board because they were mailed after the Aug. 6 primary date. The board found another 12 returned ballots were undeliverable.

Two ballots were returned unsigned and one was counted after a signature was provided.

The board viewed 24 ballots which had signatures that possibly did not match the signatures on record and accepted 16 of them.

The primary election finished with 1,317 total ballots counted from among the 3,567 voters in the four districts which were on the primary ballots. Turnout rate was 36.9 percent.
