The Curry County Clerk’s office will conduct a hand tally of two ballot boxes Friday.

The tally is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Friday in the clerk’s office and is open to the public.

District Judge Stephen Quinn issued an order Tuesday allowing ballot boxes from Precincts 11 and 7 in accordance with state law, according to a release from Clerk Connie Jo Lyman.

State law requires the procedure as a part of the post election system check, the release said.
