Czarny said he noticed a large push on social media for unaffiliated voters to go out to the polls and vote using affidavit ballots. On one hand, he said it shows enthusiasm from people who might not have voted in the past, but they also don’t seem to know the election rules.
He said the Board of Elections dealt with a lot of unaffiliated voters and affidavit ballots throughout the day, which proved to be difficult. Some of them chose to come down to the office and file a court order to have their vote be counted.
“That thing has really been our day,” Czarny said. “It’s frustrating because we have a brisk amount of court orders.”
