It's A Vote-Off: New Election Ordered for 87th District

Normally, a recount would be in order. But a polling place in Brentwood issued to voters 102 ballots for a different district. On Monday, County Circuit Judge Michael Jamison made the decision to have the voters come back to the polls and try it again.
The new election will take place Monday, September 24. Look for that election reminder in your mailbox if you're in the 87th District. And before you groan and mutter that your vote doesn't count, consider for a moment that if this past election had been properly handled, one vote would have decided it all.
