Glitch could impact up to 21,000 Wash. voters

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- State officials say technical problems are having an impact on the ballots of 21,000 voters.
The secretary of state's office said Monday that voters who used the Department of Licensing website to update their address register to vote are impacted. Officials say that voters who have registered but haven't received a ballot should go to elections offices and cast a provisional ballot. Those votes must be completed by close of business on Tuesday.
The secretary of state's office says it has not been receiving online voter registration updates from the Department of Licensing and just learned of the problem on Friday. But licensing officials say they have been forwarding along all the appropriate information. The online update option was implemented in August.
