AL: 935 paper ballots cast in GOP gubernatorial primary missing*
http://blog.al.com/live/2010/06/935_paper_ballots_cast_in_gop.html
Davis said Wednesday that the inspector in Precinct 78, which is at Independent Methodist, turned in documentation from the primary election -- tapes with vote totals and the cartridges inside the electronic voting machines -- but did not include the paper ballots.

"Everything he understood that he was supposed to turn in, he turned in," Davis said. "There is no indication of any kind of fraud or anything of any improper nature."

Davis said that county election officials don't know what happened to the ballots. He said that he has not talked to the inspector.

Davis said that the recount also turned up a problem at Precinct 55, which is in Hillcrest Baptist Church. That precinct showed an overvote of 112 , probably because one of machines broke down, Davis said.

When the polls were closed, the votes from that broken machine were fed into another machine. The cartridge from the broken machine was still counted during the primary, Davis said. Republican Party officials caught the overvote during the recount, he said.
