SHOCK: Ohio County ‘Finds’ Hundreds Of Uncounted Ballots In Still-Undecided Special House Election

With all votes counted in Ohio’s 12th congressional district special election on Tuesday, Republican candidate Troy Balderson narrowly defeated Democratic challenger Danny O’Connor. The margin — out of 202,521 votes cast — was just 1,754 in favor of Balderson.

But Ohio election officials on Wednesday “found” some 588 previously uncounted votes in a Columbus suburb, and after tabulating them, O’Connor picked up 190 more votes, cutting Balderson’s lead to 1,564 votes.

“The votes from a portion of one voting location had not been processed into the tabulation system,” the Franklin County Board of Elections said to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Both Balderson and President Trump, who endorsed him, have declared victory, but there are still as many as 8,000 absentee ballots and provisional votes to count, election officials say. Still, O’Connor said he does not plan to concede, and on Wednesday asked supporters for more money.

If the margin at the end of all counting is 0.5% or less, elections officials will conduct an automatic recount.

But until then, you can expect Democrats to keep “finding” more uncounted ballots.

    Funny how whenever a Democrat loses an election, so-called “uncounted ballots” keep turning up. Not to mention the 170 people who were 116 or over somehow managed to vote. Democrats are involved in voter fraud all the time. This is one of their MOs.
