Voting issues arise in Titus

Published 9:21am Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Elmore County Probate Judge John Enslen spent most of Tuesday morning on the telephone.

The reason Enslen was to contact 26 voters who had cast their ballot in the Titus polling district without having a chance to vote in the Republican primary for the Senate District 30 seat.

“I am in the process now of getting the phone numbers for those 26 people and calling them so that if they have a desire to do so, they may return to the voting place to vote only for that one Senate District 30 race,” Enslen told The Herald Tuesday morning.

Tuesday marked the Republican and Democratic primary elections for state and county races.

Enslen said somehow the race was omitted from the ballot in the Titus precinct following reapportionment.

“We have handled the problem in an appropriate way,” Enslen added. “Everyone who wants to vote will be able to vote in all of the races to which they are entitled to vote.

“As soon as I found out about the problem, we borrowed some extra ballots from another precinct and took the proper ballots to Titus.”

As of press time Tuesday, Enslen did not report any other issues at Elmore County voting precincts.
