Follow Up on McWoods Ballot Snafu

Steve Gardner has more on the story about 71 voters in the newly annexed McCormick Woods Development who received ballots without any of the City of Port Orchard races (four council races, two contested).

The elections office will send out new ballots Tuesday, Kitsap County Auditor Walt Washington said. Voters will be subject to the same Nov. 3 deadline as everyone else. Had the mistake been noticed closer to the election date, county officials might have extended the deadline for those voters.

County elections officials were operating on the same incorrect maps that led to the ballot problem for the August primary election, but it didn’t matter because there were no city of Port Orchard races contested in the primary.
