Clark County Elections office to test ballot count accuracy

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County elections officials will perform a hand count of approximately 600 randomly selected ballots beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The hand count is part of a manual comparison against machine results for the Aug. 1 primary and special election.

Results from a city of Battle Ground race will be counted by hand to check the accuracy of the ballot tabulation equipment. The selected ballots will be included in the total returns on Election Day.

Only voters registered within the cities of Battle Ground and Woodland, Fire Protection District 3 and Fire Protection District 5 are eligible to vote in the primary election.

If a voter has not received their ballot, they should contact the elections department at 564-397-2345 or email elections@clark.wa.gov.

Voters can download a replacement ballot at VoteWA.gov and click on Online Ballot. The voter must print the declaration sheet and ballot and return it by following the instructions.
