Ballot distribution errors in the Nov. 8 election have thrown the race for two Morgan School Board positions into a legal tangle that the County Commission plans to turn over to a 2nd District Court judge.
County Clerk Janis Widdison said Tuesday that in the Precinct 2 race, three voters in the South Morgan Voting District were not given school board ballots.In Precinct 1, Widdison said, 57 people were given the wrong ballots in the Peterson Voting District.
Morgan County Commission Chairman Jeff London said the county attorney has been directed to prepare legal papers that the judge may review when he makes a routine stop in Morgan on Monday.
London said the commission, which does not have authority to order another election, will abide by the judge's decision.
Widdison attributed the problem to "honest mistakes" by voting judges.
