E&S Machines Mistally NH Election

Two Machines Confiscated for Examination by Attorney General
After Results Fail to Add Up

Bradblog - 3/18/2006

Grafton – No matter how you do the math, 193 “yeas” plus 198 “nays” don’t add up to 369 votes.

That faulty equation — results of a warrant article vote from Tuesday’s election ballot — was the first clue for Grafton town officials that something was wrong.

As a result, two voting machines used to collect ballots in the annual town and school district meetings are now in the custody of the Attorney General’s Office, removed from the town yesterday, said Grafton Selectman Jennie Joyce.
