Manual special election ballot count comparison to be performed Feb. 14
Vancouver, Wash. – Beginning at 8:30 am Wednesday, Feb. 14, elections officials will hand count approximately 600 randomly selected ballots as part of a manual comparison with machine results.
The selected ballots will be counted in the total election day returns. But for this comparison, the Evergreen Public Schools race on those ballots will be counted by hand to check the accuracy of the ballot tabulation equipment.
The procedure was recommended by the Washington Secretary of State’s Office and is now standard practice in Clark County.
Ballots for the Feb. 13 special election have been mailed only to voters in city of Camas, Battle Ground School District, Evergreen Public Schools and La Center School District.
If a voter has not received a ballot, contact the Elections Office at 360.397.2345 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a replacement ballot. Ballots are not forwarded by the U.S. Postal Service. If a voter has recently moved and the Elections Office did not receive a change of address, a ballot will be returned as undeliverable.
Starting Friday, Feb. 9, voters can download a replacement ballot at clarkvotes.org. Voter must print the ballot and return it following instructions included in the download. Click on “Need a Replacement Ballot?” to get started.
