ST. GEORGE, S.C. (AP) โ€” The counting of more than 13,000 votes in one South Carolina county will be delayed because of a printing error.

Officials said the mail-in ballots in Dorchester County did not have the proper bars, called โ€œtiming marksโ€ printed at the top.

They say the error won’t affect anyone’s votes, but they will need to make copies and manually enter the ballots into a voting machine after the rest of the counting is done.

Officials wouldnโ€™t say how long that might take except that Dorchester Countyโ€™s full results will be finished by the Friday deadline to certify returns.

The 1st and 6th District congressional races will be affected by the unscanned votes.
