11. Hey Botany:
Received this comment from a reporter who I forwarded the Dispatch article for comment:

The total of 1,800 doesn't sound right. I thought each machine was to accommodate 100 to 300 voters.
Also, did you hear about Fairfield County problems? Supposedly their machines were programmed wrong to count Issue 1 (which was knocked off the ballot) and it messed up counts elsewhere.

Subject: Dispatch: 30 e voting machines in Franklin Co NOT counted Election Night

Were others aware of this (tucked in within a Pryce/Kilroy story)?

Damschroder said one post-election discovery will add to Monday's official tally.

Votes from about 30 electronic machines in 12 county precincts weren't counted on election-night, he said, because poll workers didn't shut them down properly.

That would add another 1,800 or more votes countywide and an unknown smaller number in the Pryce-Kilroy race if those machines matched the average number of votes cast per machine across Franklin County.
