Mahoning Co. elections board adopts ballot-counting policy

YOUNGSTOWN - The Mahoning County Board of Elections adopted a policy tonight that addresses how it conducts elections.

This comes in response to the Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted insisting that a policy be made after a mistake led to the double counting of more than 6,000 early-vote ballots.

One key change is the board will restrict the number of people allowed inside the vote tabulation room when ballots are counted.
