The Ballot Botch    Story Here  Archive
Rick Anderson and Chuck Taylor Seattle Weekly 15 December 2004
It's hard to disagree with Democratic King County Council Chair Larry Phillips when he says: "More work has to be done to raise the level of confidence that the system is working." A glitch in the county's voting system that Phillips personally discovered this week could turn him into a political kingmaker, reversing the tentative outcome of a historic and excruciatingly narrow gubernatorial race by putting fellow Democrat Christine Gregoire in the Olympia mansion. On the other hand, who can argue with Mary Lane, the state Republican Party's communications director, when she describes some King County vote-counting results as "bizarre . . . and it always seems to happen in Christine Gregoire's favor." The stunning discovery this week of 573 "wrongly discarded" county absentee ballots?likely to favor Gregoire in Democrat-happy King County?is the reason everyone from Republican Gov.-elect Dino Rossi (he's won twice?and counting) to Joe Sixpack had to be thinking this voting thing flat sucks.
