FREDERICK COUNTY, Md. (7News) — The Frederick County Board of Elections is scheduled to begin rescanning all mail-in and provisional ballots on Wednesday.
Last week, the board of elections discovered a discrepancy while conducting a recount in a county council district race. That discovery revealed a different number of certified votes when compared with overall accepted mail-in and provisional ballots.

On Monday, the Frederick County Board of Elections voted to decertify the results of its 2022 primary elections. It will begin rescanning all mail-in and provisional ballots starting Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. That work is expected to take two days to complete.
Officials said the added workload was being done "out of an abundance of caution."
