150 Brunswick County Voters To Re-Vote After Poll Worker's Mistake

Nearly 150 voters in southeastern North Carolina will be invited to cast their ballots a second time after a poll worker's mistake meant they were given the wrong paperwork.

Brunswick County Elections Director Sarah Knotts said yesterday the only difference between the two types of ballots that workers mixed up is a state House seat. 
She said the voters will be notified by letter of the error and told they should come back and vote again. Those who can't, Knotts said, will still have their choices for other races counted, but the House selection dropped.
