For Immediate Release
INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 16, 2010) – The Indiana State Recount Commission announced today it will hold a public meeting Saturday, Dec. 18, 2010 to certify the election results in the Indiana House of Representatives race in House District 76. The commission will meet at 11 a.m. in room 201 of the Indiana Statehouse, 200 W. Washington St.
The certification of the election results follows the commission’s review of three in-person absentee ballots deemed invalid. The three involve in-person absentee ballots in Vanderburgh County precincts. The commission determined the votes were invalid because the in-person absentee applications lacked signatures where such a signature is required by state law. Additionally, no evidence was presented demonstrating that valid photo IDs were shown to ensure the individuals casting the absentee ballots truly existed.
