Title: New error found in Humboldt County election results
Date: January 9, 2009
Author: The Times-Standard
About a month after discovering that a software error resulted in about 200 ballots disappearing from Humboldt County's final results, County Registrar of Voters Carolyn Crnich announced Thursday that another error has been discovered.
Crnich said Friday that the newly discovered error resulted in 57 ballots from the Petrolia area being counted twice in the county's final results. The discrepancy did not affect any of the election's outcomes, according to Crnich.
It remains unclear if the discrepancy was the result of operator error, related to the previously discovered software bug or an entirely different software problem.
All information concerning the double-counted ballots has been forwarded on to California Secretary of State Debra Bowen's Office for review, Crnich said.
