Human Error Blamed for Missing Votes in Scott County


By Tammy Moore Teague
A public meeting was held on Tuesday morning to discuss three voter precincts that were not tallied into the election night results. Those precincts were Mill Creek, Mount Pleasant and Hickman Rural East.
Scott County Election Commissioner Ronnie Powell said human error was to blame. “The results do not affect any of the races,” stated Powell.
Scott County Clerk Barbara Whitely caught the error while reviewing the unofficial election results. “We didn’t catch it until the clerk was getting the reports together,” stated Powell. “She saw the zeros and called me to see what was going on.”
The deadline for the election results to be certified official is November 21.
