FLINT, Michigan — Except for the mystery involving damaged electronic voting cards from Flushing Township, everything appeared to go smoothly during Tuesday’s election.
“It was actually a very easy day,” said elections supervisor Doreen Fulcher.
The Genesee County board of canvassers didn’t have many issues to address when members met today to certify election results.
But members learned that in Flushing Township — where a recall effort against four board members failed — electronic cards recording votes from precinct 1 were damaged.
A report of votes from the precinct was printed before the cards got damaged and matched the township’s poll books. The votes were entered manually instead.
Canvassing board members decided not to take any action related to the unreadable cards, which appeared to have been damaged during transportation.
