The preliminary results that were posted on the Town’s website were unofficial and once staff started the certification process this morning they soon recognized that there was an error in one of formulas on a spread sheet, which was used to add up the different modes of voting – the formula included the web and phone total votes twice thus overstating the total votes. The certification process is designed to catch these types of issues and has now been completed and the certified results are now posted on the Town’s website. Thank you all for your patience and understanding.
