DETROIT (WNEM) -

A new report shows more voting troubles surrounding the ballots in Detroit.

According to the Detroit Free Press, a closer look at the numbers revealed 782 more votes were cast than people who showed up to the polls.

The number is fairly significant compared to the near 250,000 votes cast in the city’s precincts.

Officials aren’t sure if it was a machine or human error.

Last week, it was revealed several precincts would be facing audits for similar issues.
