Ballots in Baugo School Board race nullified due to apparent ballot confusion


Voters choosing candidates in three different districts were allowed to vote for no more than two candidates, but could only vote for one candidate in each district. This is where the confusion came in, because in districts one and two 379 people voted for multiple candidates in the same district, which nullified the ballots.

In District 1 Julie Phillips was ousted from her seat by Chris Carithers, even though she received the second most votes total. Both were from District 1 and Carithers got the most overall votes. District two ended up going to the third highest vote getter in Eric Ott.

Phillips told the Elkhart Truth she believe the voting machines were the issue and hopes in future elections changes will be made to avoid the problem.
