Warrick County Failed To Count 3,700 Votes In 2012 Election
Warrick County's Clerk Sarah Redmon has just confirmed that in the 2012 general election the clerk's office neglected to count about 3,700 votes that had been cast during early voting in that county. That number represents 90% of the in-person votes cast prior to the election during early voting. According to Redmon, the missed votes were discovered by a Democratic precinct committeeman just recently. A technician who worked for Indianapolis-based MicroVote incorrectly uploaded the early votes according to the report. Warrick County Democratic Chairman Kevin Derr said there was no cause for alarm because the untabulated votes wouldn't have affected the outcome of any races. These kind of mistakes are inexcusable. Thousands of voters were disenfranchised by the negligent act of this voting software company's employee. And then they wonder why people no longer trust the votes tabulated by electronic voting machines.
