The Harrisonburg Electoral Board held an emergency meeting Thursday after a vote came into question. For the first time in three years, the electoral board pulled an absentee ballot to verify a decision made by election officers. It is concerning because of the recount that is underway in the Attorney General’s race. “One of our voters was notified that his vote was not opened and counted and he would like to know why,” said Penny Imeson, who is the secretary of the Harrisonburg Electoral Board.
Secured inside the Rockingham County Courthouse are votes from both the City of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. Chaz Evans-Haywood, the keeper of the ballots, facilitated the votes’ review.
“This is a great opportunity to see why ballots are kept,” said Chaz Evans-Haywood, who is the Clerk of Court with the Rockingham County Courthouse.
