Ballots missing in Casar

Amelia Townsend

CASAR — Precinct officials in Casar searched the volunteer fire department for 120 missing ballots last night, but none were found.

Democratic and Republican Party leaders said election certification is a two-tiered process, with the vote tallies from each precinct being compared to what was reported to the Board of Elections on election night. This is called the canvass and is usually done about a week after the election.

The second part, called certification, counts the actual ballots and compares them against the canvass totals. They counted Casar’s on Monday and discovered the discrepancy.
