Clearfield County elections director Dawn Graham says most Democrats voted by mail and a majority of Republicans voted at the polls.
This unexpected turnout caused a ballot shortage in some of their polling locations but she says they were able to handle it efficiently.
For this year’s primary, Graham says they used a formula by the department of state to ensure that they had enough ballots.
But she says that did not work.
Another minor hiccup, was a shortage of nearly 11 poll workers but Graham says they had enough staff to work the polls.
Next up, the write in ballots.
“We can’t get to the write ins yet, so we will start those possibly tomorrow it usually takes me about a week-10 days to do those and winners will be notified with paper work that they’ll have to fill out.”
Graham asks for the public’s patience as they get all of the results in.
