    Doesn’t it seem odd that in the following precincts there was only a few votes cast for school board members and many votes cast for the other offices? Such as Mashawville had 270 votes cast for County Council and only 46 votes cast for school board, or Peebles that 289 votes cast for County Council and only 1 vote cast for School Board, or Sidneys that had 183 votes cast for County Council and 8 votes cast for school board members. A report was made to the Voters Registration Board on election day that the category for school board was not present on some ballots which means voters were not allowed to vote for school board members.

    This is what elections director Angela Upchurch said:
    People who voted straight ticket and did not review their ballots did not vote for school board if they were in the districts 2, 3, 4, and 6 only. School board seats are non-partisan.
    School board seats 1, 5, & 7 were not on the ticket this time.

    If I understand the answer, you are saying if someone voted straight ticket they were not given the opportunity to vote for a nonpartisan office? Nonpartisan should be on all ballots regardless of whether or not one is voting straight ticket. The review is a second look at what you voted on, not an opportunity to be given additional categories in order to cast new votes. This answer does not make sense. I understand if the office was uncontested it would not necessarily appear on the ballot.
