The town clerk of Walden said that the tally there on the Progressive ticket (1 for Martha Abbott) was what she was given by the vote counters. We have reason to believe that there were at least 7 votes cast on the Progressive ballot for Annette. It is also the case that Roger Fox, a board member of Washington Electric Coop, was counting votes in Walden. He is a strong industrial wind advocate and not a supporter of Annette Smith. Certainly nobody is making any accusations against Fox or anyone else but it does seem that there is a major discrepancy here.
