Hersey is a town in Aroostook County, Maine with a population of 83. Jorgensen got 79% of the 42 votes. Any other towns won by a third party?
I had apparently contacted the Maine elections commission, and forgotten that I had.

I got an e-mail that said they had contacted Hersey, and Hersey said they had made a data entry error. The elections commission said they would inform the governor, and that they would correct their website.

The election returns in the Bangor Daily News

https://bangordailynews.com/2020/11/07/news/aroostook/aroostook-county-swung-hard-for-trump-lets-break-down-the-numbers/

Show Trump 78.6%, Biden 19%, Jorgensen 2.4%.

If these are from 42 votes shown in official returns, then it would

be Trump 33, Biden 8, Jorgensen 1.

A column was skipped in the official returns.

However the erroneous results are used in determining the number of total votes for Aroostook County.

Thanks - I expected that to be an error - is there any official documentation that can be cited?  The ME Elections web data still has the original figures.
