Pierce County Elections
The Pierce County Auditor’s office is committed to a transparent elections process. The Auditor mailed out the first set of ballots to UOCAVA voters (Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act ) on Sept 18. Our office learned on Sept. 22 that the voter’s name on the dark red ballot return envelope was not correct. It did not match the name and address on the light blue delivery envelope. The Auditor’s office immediately contacted the print and mail vendor for Pierce County election ballots, K&H Integrated Print Solutions. K&H realized 365 ballots were potentially impacted and had manually tried to fix the 365 ballots which does not follow agreed upon protocols for this type of incident. On Sept. 25, the Pierce County Auditor’s office sent a letter and replacement ballot to the 365 potentially impacted voters alerting them to the issue. The vendor believes that only 88 ballots could have been impacted.
The Pierce County Auditor’s office out of an abundance of caution sent new ballots to all voters from the run of 365. We been in contact with the Office of the Secretary of State on the issue.
