    Not that it would change the outcome of any other elections, but I wonder how many other votes would be ‘found’ if a recount was done on the other elections.

    A friend of mine who lives in the county said he received a ballot that was for a district he didn’t reside in. Being the honest person he was, he notified them of the mistake and recieved a new ballot for his district.

    I would assume this is just an isolated incident but it makes you wonder.
