A recount could be looming in the 4th Congressional District race between two Democrats as more uncounted ballots surfaced on Thursday.
Officials in Newton, Wellesley and Franklin on Thursday restarted counting primary ballots after Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin filed a court order to authorize local poll workers to continue counting ballots that were received on time and had not been tallied by the end of Tuesday night.
In Franklin, poll workers Thursday evening were counting about 3,000 uncounted ballots much more than the previously estimated 600 uncounted ballots, according to a spokeswoman for the Secretary of the Commonwealths Office.
The newly discovered 3,000 uncounted ballots were mail-in votes that appeared to have never made it to polling locations on Election Day.
We also believe based on conversations weve had with leaders in several communities that there may be even more uncounted ballots in communities across the district, and thats deeply concerning, Mermell said in front of Newton City Hall, ahead of ballot counting on Thursday.
This is an important example for the rest of the country, at a time when President Trump is working hard to discredit mail-in voting and make it harder for people to vote, Auchincloss added.

Auchincloss is currently leading Mermell. We'll see how happy he is if the count turns around the results.
THIS IS WHY NO MAIL IN VOTING
CHEATING BY ‘OH WE JUST ‘FOUND’ THEM’ bs
Or they’ll come up with extra “votes” after elections have been certified.
This is going to be done nation wide in November. It has been in the works since it succeeded so well in key districts in 2018.
This Covid ‘Vote-By-Mail’ scheme just makes it easier, but they were going to do it anyway.
How could that possibly be?
They don’t need mail in ballots to perpetrate the “oh we just found them”. This was evidenced in the last CA election when 5 GOPs who won on election night lost by the next morning as in-person ballots were found in trunks of cars etc.
But still why make it worse with mail in ballots.
He doesnt have to work very hard to discredit mail-in voting, you jackass. In fact, youre doing all his work for him.
Yep. There is no way Trump will be allowed to win this election.
As a MA resident and longtime resident of this district I find this fiasco delightful.
“...as more uncounted [fraudulent] ballots surfaced...”
Oh God, please don’t let this happen to our country in November....
The most crooked politician will almost certainly win this one—by definition!
i know, they do it in WI every election in madison and milwaukee and racine/kenosha, probably lacrosse and a couple other places
Lock and load.
When the soap box and ballot bosx fail there is only one box remaining.
I’ve increased my arsenal 150%.
How about you?
It has to be against the law for states to try to switch to mail in ballots less than a year before a presidential election!!
Demon-rats are purposely setting up a REAL CLUSTERFUVK!!
Massive FRAUD will abound and demon-rat perpetrators of this COVID MAIL IN SCAM should be sued to stop it or the election should be delayed until everyone can go to the polls with PICTURE ID.
Blatant in your face fraud. And the people don’t even whimper.
Can you say voter fraud?
Harvesting ballots this needs to stop
