1. about the discrepancies
Undervotes aren't unusual. The overvotes shouldn't have happened, the article didn't
say what the cause was. Was it confusion over Fusion voting, or what?

As for the discrepancies
"Two machines were found to have one extra ballot, while one machine had two extra ballots."

It is weird for machines to have extra ballots. How does that happen?
Do they mean there were ballots in the machines but no votes - i.e blank ballots?
Or do they mean that there were more ballots than voters?
