|Election Commissioner, Shawnee Co., KS|
In the run up to the 2008 state primary election contest, Ensley's office allotted forty-three Federal service ballots in an incorrect column, thus preventing optical scanning voting machines from uploading their results properly. This oversight, which Ensley attributed to simple human error, resulted in four-thousand ballots not being counted.
Three months later, during the general election, an election board worker from Ensley's office inadvertently misplaced fourteen provisional ballots in the trunk of her car. Ensley admitted to the mistake and said that it should never have happened.
