A Recipe For Disaster About Election Proposal

kit

Yakima County Auditor Corky Mattingly is not in favor of a proposal that would require ballots on election night to be processed and counted by midnight. Mattingly says it is a recipe for disaster because if auditor offices are rushed to count ballots mistakes could be made.

Mattingly says trying to meet a midnight deadline on election night would require a team of trained workers the county can not afford and could lead to major mistakes like those made in King County four years ago. The measure was introduced by a Democrat from Sequim. Currently the State’s vote by mail system only requires ballots be postmarked by Election Day. This means many ballots are not counted until days after the election. Mattingly says voters do not mind that because they know the count is accurate. She says the only people that want faster results are politicians and the media.
