UPDATE: The provisional ballot filled out by David Johnson, a USF professor, who was given a provisional ballot despite being a registered Hillsborough County voter for nine years, will be counted.
Travis Abercrombie, Hillsborough Supervisor of Election spokesman, said a man with a similar name, “David L. Johnson,” was registered in Orange County and the professor’s voter information was accidentally moved to that county. Johnson was told at the time of voting that his vote would be provisional.
“I learned what it meant to feel disenfranchised,” he said.
Johnson received a call this afternoon around 3 p.m. from the Supervisor of Elections who said the vote would be counted.
