Approximately 500 absentee ballot for the General Election were not counted according to Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher. PBC election officials said in a press release that they made this discovery while recounting the close District 6 School Board race between Marcia Andrews and Dean Grossman.
"Unfortunately, what appears to have been human error has resulted in a number of absentee ballots not having been counted," said Bucher in the press release.
The number of uncounted ballots could possibly affect not only the School Board recount, but also the still unofficial results of several other close local races, according to Bucher.
