June 5, 2014 CALL TO ORDER Chairman Claggett called the regular meeting of the Davison County Board of Commissioners to order at 9:00 a.m. All members of the Board were present. Also present was Auditor Kiepke. PLEDGE The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Chairman Claggett. APPROVE MINUTES Motion by Weiss, second by Weitala to approve the minutes from the May 27th, 2014 meeting. All members voted aye. Motion carried. 2014 PRIMARY ELECTION REPORT Auditor Kiepke reported that she was very proud of herself and her staff for the way the 2014 Primary Election was conducted. She stated that she was prepared for possible glitches with the new DS850. Therefore, she and her staff tested and tested and tested the equipment before election night. Auditor Kiepke also had ES&S personnel on hand in the event of a possible glitch. The reason the DS850 was implemented now rather than November is because the Primary, as a rule, has far less voter turnout. By implementing the machine in June, any problems would be able to be worked out. There turned out to be an issue with the ballot stamps. It didn't have to do with anything anybody did wrong, it had to do with the machine simply doing its job. Some of the ballot stamps were to dark so as to give the machine the impression that there was an errant mark on the ballot. Rather than panic, Kiepke stated that she appointed two more resolution boards to add to the one she regularly appoints. The resolution boards, comprised of one Democrat and one Republican, replaced the ballots that couldn't be read and they were rescanned. The Board supported Kiepke's decisions and thanked her for saving other counties grief in the long run in November RECESS BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS / CONVENE CANVASSING BOARD At 9:30 a.m., motion by Kiner, second by Weitala to recess Board of Commissioners and convene the 2014 Primary Election Canvassing Board.
