Incorrect school trustee ballots found at 7 polling stations: elections authority
There were seven voting stations in Edmonton that received incorrect school trustee ballot choices on election day.
According to the City of Edmonton on Monday, the issues were “resolved quickly.”
The voting tabulators didn’t accept the ballots since they’re only programmed to accept correct ballots, the city said.
Because of this, voting had to be suspended for people in those school districts until the correct ballots were delivered.
A handful of voting stations were affected by the error: Forest Heights School, Suzuki Charter School, Argyll Centre, Gold Bar School, Hardisty School and École Publique.
The city said St. Brendan School is the only voting station that received the incorrect public school ballot choice.
During advance polls, Edmonton Elections grappled with the same issue as well.
