The Champaign County Board of Elections met Thursday to certify local ballots cast in the May 8 election. The board considered 43 provisional ballots. Five of these ballots were not certified because would-be voters were not registered in Ohio. Also, 15 more absentee ballots arrived after May 8.
Adding the absentee ballots and qualified provisional ballots to ballots already counted did not change the outcome of issues and races released by the county board May 8, according to the Board of Elections.
