Two friends of mine from Middlesex wrote to tell me that they had both voted Annette Smith for gov on the Prog ballot. I just got off the phone with the Middlesex town clerk who told me that there were 10 Prog ballots turned in and all were BLANK on the governor's line. I specifically asked if there were no write ins and she said, No, no write-ins.
What gives? Much the same think in Sutton, Westmore, Waltham. Is it the case that some towns just are even counting write-ins?
UPDATE It seems that Middlesex recorded 5 votes for Annette Smith for LT GOV.
UPDATE 2: Sutton has changed its total from 4 to 7 votes for Annette.
It's clearly time to think about a recount and for the Sec of State to get to the bottom of all these discrepancies.
