GREENFIELD — Local candidates remained in a state of flux Wednesday after the Hancock County Election Board made an unprecedented decision to wait until today to finish counting ballots.

Hancock County is one of only three counties in Indiana with problems counting ballots, and is the only county that did not address the issue immediately Wednesday.

Fatigued after a busy election day but still with three precincts left uncounted, the election board decided to not call an emergency meeting Wednesday to finish processing votes. Rather, the board will meet at 9 a.m. today, which was a regularly scheduled meeting time to go over provisional ballots.
