Why did voters leave some races blank?
They're called "under votes" - ballots that for some reason or another, voters choose to leave blank for some races.
There were a lot of under votes in Tuesday's election in Douglas County. Local election officials could only speculate why.
Maybe some only wanted to vote in the presidential race or on the constitutional amendments and skip the other elections.
