Wes Clement THE PineBluff COMMERCIAL 26 October 2008

A Redfield alderman candidate who may have lost votes due to an error on Redfield and Altheimer early voting ballots expressed dismay on Saturday that such a mistake could occur. “I’m kind of speechless that this happened,” said Brenda Carmical, Redfield alderman candidate, Ward 2, Position 2. “I would like to know how many have voted to this point to see how many votes we may have missed. We have a problem in Redfield where many don’t get out to vote so it usually comes down to the nitty gritty. If someone has voted already, it could really have a significant impact on the results. Our last mayor won by only three votes.”
