Double (Counting?) Trouble: North Dakota County Struggles with 301-Vote Discrepancy

by - April 18, 2013

Right now, Walsh County, ND is suffering through every election official's worst nightmare: they cannot figure out the results of an election. The Grand Forks Herald has the details: The Walsh County election canvassing board spent more than seven hours Tuesday without successfully finding the source of a 301-vote discrepancy in the Nov. 6 general election. That is, there were 4,603 people that voted, but the tally came to 4,904 votes. Compounding the pain is the fact that at least once seat on the county council may be affected, as one candidate missed out on a seat by fewer than 100 votes.
