Sheridan Finds Ballot Machines Worked Well

Sheridan, Wy – The ballot machines in Sheridan County worked perfectly last November. That's the message from officials who oversaw a hand-review of the ballots this week. Out of more than 11-thousand ballots, only a handful were filled out improperly. For example, on a few ballots, voters chose more than one candidate. But for each of the improper ballots, the machines did what most election judges would do: they did not award any candidate the vote in that race. Sheridan County Attorney Matt Redle says he was surprised the machines were so consistent and pleased.
