Freehold, New Jersey – Following yesterday's election and the posting of unofficial results, Monmouth County Clerk Christine G. Hanlon has issued the following statement:

"Dominion Voting Systems, the County's election software vendor, was on site to oversee the tally of the 2015 general election results. Dominion appears to have deleted the vote by mail results from the tally at the end of the night for some unknown reason."

"We have spent several hours investigating the problem and have determined that the Dominion representative made an error in deleting the Vote by Mail numbers. We have corrected the problem and have posted the updated unofficial results to the MonmouthCountyVotes.com website."

"There are  provisional ballots that still have to be reviewed by the Superintendent of Elections. Those ballots will not be counted until next week. As such, and as in past elections, all results must be considered unofficial until after the provisional ballots are counted and the election results are certified."

"Our problems with Dominion have become chronic and will not be tolerated. We are continuing to investigate the situation and will be holding Dominion fully accountable."

"My apologies to any candidates whose results may have changed due to this error."
