  1. I am interested in finding out how to vote twice. The number of voters was 6,518, but a total of 7,151 votes were cast for the 2 senate candidates. Hmmm…

    1. The absentee ballots are not included in the total. We have not been given the number of absentee ballots cast yet. Thanks for pointing the issue out though. Clarified in our story.
