BROOKSVILLE -

County Commissioner Wayne Dukes said the canvassing board decided Friday there will be no audit or investigation resulting from an erroneous ballot discovered the first day of early voting for the Aug. 14 primary.

Dukes said the board decided appropriate steps were taken and no other ballots were tainted.

The error occurred because the vendor used by the county failed to properly upload the correct file in one of the machines, he said.

Dukes thanked School Board member Dianne Bonfield for discovering one of the school board races had been left off the ballot. She was the first person to use the machine at the westside elections office. She received a corrected ballot.

Shirley Anderson, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections, had called for an audit.
