City election ballots still being counted

Vote tallying stalled at 2 a.m. Wednesday following a night of confusion and counting issues among some of Bloomington’s voting precincts and the board.

The city switched to paper ballots for this year’s election, Monroe County Clerk Linda Robbins said.

Unlike digital ballots, the paper ballots must be hand-counted at polling sites by the poll inspector and the opposite party poll judge, something some members of the board were not aware of.
