Following the May 24, 2007, election there were 25 contested ballots. City Council members concluded that 11 would be disallowed, 10 allowed, four held and considered at their May 31 meeting. At the May 29, the 10 allowed votes were announced without any attempt to
conceal the identities of the voters and whom the ballots were cast for. The petitioners claim that the Board of Canvassers should conduct the election without considering extrinic material; much count each vote unless legitimately challenged and challenge must be upheld by the board and may not refuse to count a ballot that has been properly cast in an election. They seek that the City of Charles Town Board of Canvassers count all of the votes of the authorized voters.
