Voters in Winnebago County headed to the polls on June 7 for the primary election.
The Winnebago County Auditor’s office released unofficial results because vote counts were one vote over at Buffalo Center’s Grant and Lincoln Township precincts and three votes over at Lake Mill’s Center Township precinct. In a June 9 meeting, supervisors approved a ballot recount at both polling sites, using the same vote scanners.
County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Karla Weiss said that older mother boards appear to have contributed to paper jams in the ballot tabulators.
“Even though I don’t think it’s going to change the vote count, we’re going to do an administrative recount to make sure everything is perfect,” Weiss said. Three poll workers – one Republican, one Democratic, and one with no party affiliation were to help conduct the recount later on June 9. Weiss noted that although the vote count went up when ballots were refed, no ballots would have been counted twice.
