Errors Made 26 Virginians Mistakenly Vote in Wrong District in 2017
Pivotal mistakes made by Virginia election officials reportedly caused at least 26 people to cast their votes in the wrong district during a state delegate race in 2017, according to an analysis of voter records by TheWashington Post. The mistake may have impacted the final outcome of the razor-thin race—between Republican David Yancey and Democrat Shelly Simonds—reports the Post. Gov. Ralph Northam’s office has said that a statewide review of the issue has been lodged.
