Millett said she has not spoken to Kitchin or anyone else in the clerk’s office about her husband’s ballot, and said she isn’t sure exactly who told her that it hadn’t been counted, saying she thinks it was an attorney. But going forward, she’ll make a point to hand deliver the ballot to City Hall.
“I thought I was OK mailing it, and I thought a week would be sufficient for that to go from Middle Road to Friend Street,” Millett said.
As for whether her husband’s vote could have potentially swayed the result of the race, Millett said she doesn’t know which of the two candidates her husband voted for, and that she just mailed it for him.
Mayor-elect Ken Gray defeated four-term incumbent Mayor Thatcher Kezer 2,092 to 2,090 on Election Day. There will be a recount on Thursday morning in the City Hall auditorium.
