Another Wrinkle in MoCo Election
Election officials in Montgomery County reconvene tomorrow morning to review at least 108 outstanding absentee ballots from last week's special election. But there may be more than the remaining absentee ballots at stake in determining a winner in the Democratic primary contest for an open seat on the County Council in District 4.
Since last week's election and after a first count of absentee and provisional ballots, Board of Education member Nancy Navarro has held on to thin 73-vote lead over Del. Benjamin F. Kramer.
But Kevin Karpinski, an attorney for the board of elections, said Kramer's team has asked to examine the voting machine print outs from a dozen precincts. That review will take place later this afternoon.
A source close to the Kramer campaign said there is a discrepancy between the numbers the candidate's field operation gathered on election night and the board's own precinct tallies.
Could the review be a prelude to a recount? So far, no one is using the "R" word.
