Of the seven, six ballots were ruled invalid because the voters were registered at a different address than the address they listed in affidavits accompanying their provisional ballots, Pretty said.

One provisional ballot was discounted because a voter's last name did not match the last name listed in the state database for registered voters, she said.

Bledsoe contends poll workers who filled out affidavits for those voters failed to ask the right questions to explain the discrepancies.

If the voters had been told what information they needed to provide or if election officials had researched the voter information more thoroughly, the ballots could have been validated and counted, he said.

Stiles' attorney, Robert McCampbell, accused Bledsoe of dealing in “hypotheticals, instead of facts.”

Jamie Jennings testified that she and her husband voted by absentee ballot in the House District 45 race but that she learned through a conversation with her boss a few days later that they must have been sent the wrong ballots.

Jennings' boss pointed out to her that she and her husband actually live in House District 44, Jennings said.
