Response to bluestarone (Reply #4)

9. i think the recount tossed out this ballot, leaving the democrat up by 1 vote.

then they refused to certify the election on the grounds that this one ballot should be counted as a vote for the republican, leading to a tied election.

the ballot had both candidates' circles filled in, supporting the argument that it was an invalid overvote.

but the circle for the democrat had a single line through it, supporting the argument that it was "crossed-out" and therefore meant to be a vote for the republican.


i think. i've seen some confusing articles on this matter....
