The table games referendum passed in Kanawha County by just 33 votes, but that number is about to change.
A new development came Monday today when 64 early vote ballots from a Sissonville precinct were found at the voter’s registration office. Those 64 votes have not been counted.
The early vote ballots were sent to all of the precincts and should have been counted along with Saturday’s vote, the early ballots from precinct 431 were missed on Saturday night.
Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper says that particular precinct in Sissonville went against table games on a 173 to 96 vote.
"I can see that if this does go down to the wire, a photo finish, whatever, I can see a contested election as almost a certainty," Carper said.
Carper also says 280 out of the more than 500 challenged ballots from Saturday’s election were voters who were not registered to vote. Carper says it is likely that most of those votes will not be counted.
