New results show Di Cola winning County Council contest by one vote

August 11, 2022

Jazmin Di Cola has defeated Frederick County Council President M.C. Keegan-Ayer in a Democratic primary by one vote, according to a revised count released Wednesday. The Frederick County Board of Elections spent Wednesday rescanning thousands of mail-in and provisional ballots after a discrepancy forced officials to decertify initial results of the July 19 primary. The discrepancy — which came to light five days after results were initially certified — showed that there were more votes counted in the race between Keegan-Ayer and Di Cola than there were accepted ballots. Election officials told The Frederick News-Post that 96 ballots were double-scanned due to human error. In addition, officials found, in a folder, four provisional ballots that hadn’t been counted.
