Explain this one

How on earth were they off by this much? There were only 481 ballots to count!

In the latest Thunderchild election, Dale Awasis was originally declared the new chief, having won with 251 votes compared to the 242 cast for Wapass.

"There was a request for a recount by three individuals," said Thunderchild First Nation chief electoral officer Cheryl Wapass.

After the recount, Wapass' vote-count remained at 242 while Awasis' number dropped to 239.

Band Custom Elections can be trying. Especially an election that is ordered by the courts. With no help from admin or gov't. You will never see that happen in provincial or federal elections. thanks for your comment
