Mystery ballot in District 1 will not be counted

Election Director Josie Bahnke says that the mystery ballot that appeared in District 1 Fairbanks’s Precinct 1 will not be counted. It is a spoiled ballot.

The director told observers this morning that a personal representative of a voter obtained a ballot, then returned to the vehicle outside where her disabled husband was, and he voted, but then told her he had made a mistake. The woman returned to the polling place and asked for a new ballot. The other one that was voted for Kathryn Dodge, the Democrat, was supposed to be destroyed but the election worker put it in the wrong place.

The ballot recounting of the Bart LeBon-Kathryn Dodge race is underway in Juneau this morning. Before the recount, the race is tied 2,661 each.
