Vote 08: Ballot investigation ordered

February 7, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
The L.A. County Board of Supervisors has ordered an investigation into some Super Tuesday ballots cast by voters classified as non-partisan.Those voters were allowed to participate in Tuesday's Democratic primary, but they had to mark a box labeled "Democrat" at the top of the ballot in order for their vote to count. It's possible that thousands failed to do so.

L.A. County registrar says it will sample about one percent of the ballots to see how much of an error there is. If it determines a significant crossover vote was not counted, there may be legal options to add the votes to the count.
