Report says paper ballots
caused electoral confusion

(Continued from Page 1)
One unidentified p r e c i n c t
chairperson said in the report:
"We did not seal the supply box
with a metal numbered seal, as
we were not instructed to do so."
HOWEVER, City Clerk Jer-
ome Weiss contended he in-
formed election workers to seal
the ballot boxes. Weiss recalled
that many of the workers did
not pay enough attention to his
briefing on procedural details:
"Many of these' people had
been working at elections for
years," he reported. "They
thought they had it all down,
and didn't need further brief-
ing."
Another problem, which the
report calls "one of the most
serious errors committed by the
election inspectors," was includ-
ing voter registration records in
the ballot boxes.
THESE RECORDS are the

anly documents of voters' ad-
dresses and signatures trans-
ported to the polls-
Weiss obtained a court order
to get the permission required
to reopen the boxes and retrieve
the necessary files for the June
9 local School Board elections.
Voting inspectors and admin-
istrators also committed 23
certifying errors during the elec-.
tion which involved failing to
certify voting return statements.
BUT THE report notes that
"these errors are a common
occurrence in local election ad-
ministration," and offered data
showing similar instances which
occured during the school board
election.

The study further emphasizes,
"Preferential voting did not im-
pact significantly upon the form
of these documents or require-
ments for signature."
Another problem area involves
42 dispersing errors which in-
cluded some 13 city clerk and
county canvassers' envelopes be-
ing incorrectly placed in ballot
boxes.
But with Council considering
switching the city to either a
punch card or computer mark
ing card voting system, the dif-
ficulties encountered in the last
election may never recur. The
paper balloting system is only
used during mayoral elections,
and the next one is not expected
until 1976.
