NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State election figures show just 23 percent of the provisional ballots cast in the 2012 Tennessee general election were counted.
According to The Tennessean, there were more than 7,000 of the paper ballots filled out statewide and just over 1,600 of them tabulated.
State Election Coordinator Mark Goins said he would like to see a lower figure, but notes the election totals show fewer than two-tenths of one percent of Tennessee voters who went to cast their ballots had problems at the polls.
Nearly half of the provisional ballots statewide were cast in Shelby County, where almost 90 percent of them were not included in the vote count.
