Jennifer Lamb testified her last name had changed and that she was allowed to cast a provisional ballot after showing identifications for both her maiden name, which matched the voter registration book, and her married name.
Bledsoe said Lamb's case was one of several in which provisional ballots were ruled invalid that should have been counted.
Further irregularities occurred with a group of mail-in absentee ballots that required notarization, he said. Ten ballots were signed by notaries who had no bonds on file with the Oklahoma Secretary of State, as required by law, Bledsoe said.
Other mail-in absentee ballots had affidavits with dates that differed from the notarization dates, “suggesting the notaries were not present when they were signed,” Bledsoe said.
Roberts' attorney said he also could cite about 29 instances were voters were permitted to cast ballots without precinct workers checking for valid voter identifications.
Attorney Robert McCampbell, who represents Stiles, called Cleveland County Election Board Secretary Jim Williams to testify that voters who had moved but had not changed their registration could return to their old precincts to vote as long as they filed a change of registration card at the polling site.
McCampbell has argued that Stiles emerged the winner of the race when votes were tallied on election night and that he again emerged the winner when a recount was held.
Any irregularities or mistakes were minor and would not change the outcome of the election with any mathematical certainty, he said.
Both sides have indicated that no matter how Schumacher rules, the case most likely will be appealed to the state Supreme Court.
