SD Panel Reviews County's Ballot-Counting Error

August 29, 2012, 10:01 AM


Secretary of State Jason Gant has appointed a task force to review a ballot-counting problem that occurred in Davison County during South Dakota's June primary.

Gant says the task force will meet Friday in Mitchell to talk with the Davison County auditor and a representative of the company that makes the ballot counter used in the primary.

Gant says ballots from randomly selected precincts will then be counted several times to test the scanner's accuracy. The same ballots will be scanned later Friday in Sioux Falls with Minnehaha County's counting machine.

Gant says a final report will be issued by Sept. 14.

Davison County officials have said the ballot-counting problems did not affect the outcome of primary races.
