Human Error Led To Ballot Recount In Davison Co.

September 14, 2012, 4:28 PM by Perry Groten

Human Error Led To Ballot Recount In Davison Co.

A task force investigation finds that it was human error, not a machine malfunction, that led to the recount of June's primary election results in Davison County.

Secretary of State Jason Gant says the Davison County auditor's office put ballots from one precinct through the scanner twice. Plus, test ballots were not zeroed-out before the official count began.

The problem did not change the final results, including the race for Mitchell's mayor.

Gant says the state is not pointing blame at anyone. Instead, he wants to make sure auditor's offices across the state are using the counting machines correctly.
