The amount of people checked into vote was higher than the number of total votes reported on Election Day, explained the Secretary of State’s voting system implementation manager Gabriel Sterling.
Last week’s hand-counting audit confirmed suspicions, the election official explained to 11Alive. “Because of the audit, we found this,” Sterling said. “They didn’t do the reconciliation process properly.”
“We did have an issue with a scanner at the polling location where the undercount occurred. That will be the starting point for our investigation. As of now, we believe it was a technical issue caused by human error,” Melanie Conrad with the Floyd County board of elections wrote in a statement released to FOX 5 News.
The breakdown provided a net gain of over 400 votes for President Donald Trump—with 1,577 votes going to him and 1,128 going to Democratic challenger Joe Biden—plus a few dozen for Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen and write-in candidates.
