At play now is an election mixup that gave nearly 7,000 voters in five precincts an opportunity to vote in that race, despite living out of the district.
District 1 Election Commissioner Timothy Jenkins said on Tuesday the error appears to have originated from the Election Commission.
“I’ll take the blame for it,” Jenkins said.
He explained that they use two different operating systems. One of those systems showed a split in those five precincts and another system did not have a split. The ballots were formulated from the latter.
