City of Montello recount. (Read this together with any comments/photos from Sandie Becker.)
OBSERVED: There were 8 or 9 Absentee ballot envelope with no initials evidencing voter ID checked. County Clerk says he won’t throw those out, but would for missing signature, witness, or judge initials on paper/absentee ballot.
OBSERVED: Inspector Statement didn’t include the seal # of the Ballot Bag.
OBSERVED: Broken red tag #1885 was on Incident Report but not found; #1958 was found but not on the report.
OBSERVED: Inspector Statement missing lots of other info + had grossly inaccurate number of absentee ballots (83, s/b 140). City Clerk Dawn C was called in, given oath, and clarified that all was OK. She had completed the Federal form 190-F (for election stats) and it had the correct numbers on it. She was asked to make changes to the Insp Stmt + the tally page from each Pollbook. She did not add the Ballot Bag seal # as that is a Chief Inspector requirement.

Clinton – 289 (-1)
Johnson – 18
Stein – 8
Morehead – 1
Scattering – 2 (+2)
McMullin 0 (-1)
