Pocomoke City Elections: No Result Announced


There were no election results in Pocomoke City last night.

Council member George Tasker was running against local resident Sheila Nelson in District One while Diane Downing was unopposed in District Two.

But the Salisbury Daily Times reports that Tasker and Nelson were called into the library for several minutes after which it was announced that there was a discrepancy.

John Haynie, the Board of Election Supervisors chair, told reporters the board was not comfortable with signing off on the results.

The Daily Times reports that he declined to say if there was some problem with the voting machine or to give any other details.
