Haar stated that such latitude and exceptions were not limitless, and the State Journal reviewed the certificate, after 10 affiliated ballots were rejected by the Clerk’s Office for various reasons.

In Ward 9 on the Far East side, two ballots were rejected because those who had submitted them also arrived to vote on Election Day. “This may be due to delays in the mail and concerns about the counting of their votes,” Haar said.

Five ballots were rejected from Ward 45 on the Isthmus: two did not bear the signatures of a witness, two were from people not registered to vote, and one from a person who had already voted.

Wards 106 and 107 on the far west side had a total of three rejected ballots. One did not have the signature of a witness and two belonged to people who had already voted.
