Impossible voter turnout signals errors by Lt. Gov. Loren Leman

Lt. Gov. Loren Leman’s job is to head up the state Division of Elections. According to the division’s Web site, House District 21, my district, registered an impossible voter turnout of 234.03 percent.

The division has posted a clarification on its Web site that addresses this problem. I dusted off my trusty calculator and followed the clarification to arrive at an equally impossible voter turnout of 121.78 percent.
