SIIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - There were some tense moments this morning between Minnehaha County Auditor Bob Litz and the County Commission over elections.
Commissioner Jeff Barth accused Litz of violating state statute by moving a portion of District 11 into District 9. Litz says the move was made by one of his staff members and he wasn't aware of it at the time.
Barth told Litz he thought the primary vote count was correct. However, Barth cited problems such as confusion over vote centers or precincts, husbands and wives told to vote in separate precincts, party voters handed a non-poartisan ballot, changes in precinct locations and registered voterers not on county lists
Litz says he’s ordered his office to do a complete audit of all 118-thousand registered voters in Minnehaha County.
