Candidates Left Off Ballots In Greenville Co.

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. - Election officials in Greenville County are looking into problems at the polls.

Greenville Co. Elections Director Conway Belangia says that there was an issue with poll workers who "did not pull up the right ballot," which left out the Republican District 24 candidates.

Candidates Bang Hall (R) and Gary Tipcomb (R) were also affected.

Belangia says this could "bring into question the results of the election," if the race ends up being close.

At this point, the elections office isn't sure how many people voted without having the appropriate ballot.

He said once voters cast their ballot "there's nothing we can do."

The elections office said they cannot notify voters because it is a secret ballot and would be illegal to contact them.

It seems like no one, the campaigns or the elections office, is sure about what might happen if the race is close and could have been compromised.

There's no word at this time how many voters are impacted.

Reporter Mike Manzoni is working to get more on this developing story.  Keep checking back for updates.
