Swindalls name on master ballot delayed returns
Placeholder Image
An error on the state level delayed Kershaw County election returns until early Wednesday morning. Kershaw County Election Commission members were unable to provide final uncertified election returns until after 2 a.m. Wednesday due to an error with a master electronic ballot provided by the S.C. Election Commission (SCEC). Commissioners estimated they could have completed reconciliation of votes cast against the master ballot hours earlier on Tuesday if the name of a withdrawn county council candidate hadn’t been left on the master ballot.
