The Lucas County Board of Elections is reviewing provisional ballots, which have the potential to impact the results of the Toledo City Council at-large race.
New information provided by Lucas County Board of Elections director, Meghan Gallagher, shows there are nearly 600 provisional ballots being reviewed. With three candidates in the Toledo at-large Council race separated by only 100 votes for the final two seats, those ballots could play a big role in the final outcome.
Staffers with the Lucas County Board of Elections are currently going over information on the provisional ballot envelopes. By law, those ballots cannot be counted until 10 days following the election, and it's likely some of those ballots will be ruled invalid by the board.
As it stands, Theresa Gabriel is in fifth place in the City Council race. Incumbent Adam Martinez is in sixth. Larry Sykes is trailing Martinez by 34 votes and Gabriel by 109 votes. However, the provisionals have the potential to alter the final order among those three candidates.
"After every election, we need to determine or review the provisional envelopes, and determine - make a recommendation to the board if those provisional envelopes are valid, if the voter is properly registered," explained Gallagher.
On Nov. 15, the board will be able to determine how many of those provisionals are valid. The final vote tally will be revealed once the board certifies the election. It's likely an automatic recount will happen if the results are within a half of 1 percent.
