They’ll be reviewing spoiled ballots. According to county officials, they could also begin examining provisional ballots.
Work is expected to begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue into 9:00 p.m., and perhaps even longer.
Besides checking out the surrendered and spoiled ballots, workers were also checking out ballots with an orange bar on them on Monday.
They say this would indicate that the county may have received an incorrect ballot as well.
County officials say this process is necessary to ensure that no person votes more than once.READ MORE: City Of Monessen Holding 2nd City-Wide Cleanup And Recycling Drop Off
