Clark County hand counting ballots to test accuracy

By , Columbian staff writer

Officials from the Clark County Elections office will perform a hand count of approximately 600 ballots starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday. After hand counting the randomly selected ballots, the results will be compared with a machine count to ensure the county’s tabulation computer and software are accurate.

For this comparison, the U.S. Senate will be counted by hand. The selected ballots will still be counted in the total returns for election day Tuesday.

Any voter who has not yet received their ballot should contact the elections office at 564-397-2345 or send an email to elections@clark.wa.gov.

Voters can download a replacement ballot at votewa.gov. After signing in, click on the Online Ballot button in the menu. Print the declaration sheet and ballot and return by following the included instructions.
