SECRETARY OF STATE MATT DUNLAP ANNOUNCES CORRECTED TABULATION FOR RACES DECIDED BY RANKED-CHOICE VOTING
AUGUSTA—Secretary of State Matt Dunlap is announcing that during the proofreading of the tabulation of the nominating contests decided by Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) it was discovered that staff selected the wrong file while uploading ballot images, and in another town a secure memory device had suffered an error preventing the upload of all the ballot images stored on it. Those issues have been addressed, and in order to complete an accurate tabulation, the Elections Division is prepared to run the tabulation again to accurately reflect the votes cast on election day. This will be done publicly at 4:00 pm today in Room 103 of the Cross State Office Building in Augusta.
