Audit: Cuyahoga Unofficial Results Show Some Absentees Deleted

CLEVELAND (AP) - An audit of unofficial vote counts from the November election in Cuyahoga County showed that votes on some absentee ballots were deleted and some were counted twice.

The auditing committee, however, could not determine whether the final election results were inaccurate in the state's most populous county. That's because it did not review official vote counts.

Candice Hoke directs the Center for Election Integrity at Cleveland State University. She says the audit also raised concerns about the main computer application used to tabulate votes. Hoke called for a fuller investigation.

Mark Radke, spokesman for voting machine manufacturer Diebold Elections Systems, said the concerns were unfounded.
