About 78 percent of absentee ballots should never have been counted.

That was the ruling issued by a Mississippi judge after a local election in Aberdeen, Mississippi.

The absentee ballots were found to be invalid and the notary involved was arrested.

Evidence of fraud and criminal activity in how absentee ballots were handled, how they were counted and actions from people at polling places resulted in the judge’s decision.

The election was decided by 37 votes.
