Vote Counting Once Again An Issue In Davison County

Vote counting in Davison County was once again an issue in Tuesday’s election. A stamp on the back of ballots that indicated which precinct a ballot was from was too dark, leaking through the paper on many ballots and causing misreads by the vote counting machine. That meant that many of the ballots had to be duplicated by hand and fed back through the machine. Davison County Auditor Sue Kiepke says she was prepared in case there were any issues by having a representative from the machine‚Äôs manufacturer on hand last night. Davison County purchased a new vote counting machine this year after there were problems with the county’s old vote counting machine in the June 2012 election.
