Election officials sorting through ballots in Clark County say they found more than a thousand uncounted.
The Vancouver Columbian reported that the ballots had been scanned but not counted. The discovery nearly doubles the votes that remain to be counted for races in the 17th District. As of Friday, Republican Don Benton was 96 votes ahead of Democrat Tim Probst in the 17th District Senate race, and House candidate Monica Stonier, a Democrat, led Republican Julie Olson by 100 votes.
Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey said it became evident that the number of people credited with voting did not match the number of affidavit envelopes received.
