Beginning at 9 am Wednesday, Nov. 9, elections officials will perform a hand count of approximately 600 ballots randomly selected as part of a manual comparison against machine results.
For this comparison, the race for United States Senator will be counted by hand, to check the accuracy of the ballot tabulation equipment. The selected ballots will be counted in the total returns on Election Day.
If a voter has not received their ballot, they should contact the Elections Office at (564) 397-2345 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A voter may 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.
