Clark County elections officials will perform a hand count of approximately 600 randomly selected ballots beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday. The count is part of a manual comparison against machine results.

Approximately 300 ballots from each political party will be counted by hand to check the accuracy of ballot tabulation equipment. The selected ballots will be counted in the total returns on Election Day.

Voters who haven’t received a 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. Click on Online Ballot then print the declaration sheet and ballot and return it by following the included instructions.
