first_imgNine voters in Precinct 100 did not have a chance in the 49th Legislative District Senate seat. The race was omitted from nine online ballots. As of Thursday, preliminary returns had Stonier leading with 26,459 votes, or 55.13 percent of votes, compared with Topper’s 21,533 votes, or 44.87 percent of votes.“I am sorry these nine voters did not have this race on the ballot they obtained online,” Kimsey said. “We have developed and will implement procedures to try to prevent this from happening in future elections.”The error was confined to one race and one precinct. The outcome of the race will not be affected by the nine ballots with the error.last_img
