Voting Results


Eleven thousand six hundred and seventy-seven voters in 13 precincts of Carroll County cast votes for the November 2020 election. There was an unexpected setback in counting when 1,843 absentee votes that were fed into voting machines in order to be printed and re-inserted into a tabulator. The procedure didn’t dovetail and that problem was traced back to a calibration bungle from the point of origin, Election Systems & Software in Omaha, Neb.

It took another day to set things right, but the tally, which is unofficial until the state certifies the count, is:
