Unusual Ballots occurred in Minnehaha County also

I found this story about ballots interesting;

More than 30 percent of registered voters in Pennington County went to the polls last week for the primary election. But not all of them voted when they got there.

It was a bit of a silent project according to Pennington County Auditor Julie Pearson, who said more than ten times the typical number of blank ballots were turned in.

“Yes, we received a lot of un-voted or blank ballots we counted this election versus the big elections in the fall where we might have five or ten of those out of 40 or 50,000 ballots cast,” Pearson said. “Out of 20,000, we had well over 100 ballots that were completely blank.”

Something called an ‘undervote’. A county worker here told me the same occurred here. Lot’s of foul things written on the ballots and several blank. Julie says it best;

One voter did explain in a scribbled message on the ballot.

“Some are specific. One that we can repeat is that no one is worth voting for in 2016,” Pearson said. “We even had somebody sign their ballot to that effect. We had them crossed out and there are those we can’t repeat.”

We really are in a deep hole in this country with our National and State elected officials. They are clueless.
