Sevier County Investigating Apparent Irregularity

Posted: Updated:

SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Sevier County election officials are deciding what to do after a voter was apparently allowed to cast two ballots.

Ed Kuncitis, county deputy administrator of elections, confirmed to The Mountain Press that a voting machine had one more vote than there were applications to vote on it.

Brandi Reagan told the newspaper she had pushed the "confirm vote" button on Thursday, but then realized the Republican primary was not on her ballot. Reagan said she was allowed to vote again. She said she did not double vote in the local general election. However, Regan said she could have again cast a ballot in the local election.

Kuncitis said a voter who pushes the tally button should not be allowed to vote further in any circumstance.
