COLUMBUS – The tight race between Democrat Danny O’Connor and Republican Troy Balderson just got tighter.
Election officials in Franklin County found 588 previously uncounted votes in a Columbus suburb. The result: O’Connor had a net gain of 190 votes, bringing the race’s margin down to 1,564.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The votes from a portion of one voting location had not been processed into the tabulation system,” according to a Franklin County Board of Elections news release.
Balderson declared victory Tuesday night in the closely watched congressional district race in central Ohio. But O’Connor says he’s waiting for all votes to be counted.
That includes 3,435 provisional ballots and 5,048 absentee ballots, which will be tabulated by Aug. 24.
