From Mitch:

The town of Scotia held an election on August 30th where all of 151 ballots were cast.

One contest was to select 5 directors of a new Community Service District.

Interestingly, one voter chose three and then wrote those three in as write-ins.  This constituted an overvote, invalidating their votes in the contest.  And wouldn’t you know it, that changed the results.

Details and links to the ballots and independent count results are at

Due to the small number of ballots, we redacted the handwriting of write-ins, replacing it with generated text so you can see the names that were written-in.
