I agree with the Nov. 18 editorial “In Our View — Integrity Key in Elections,” that trustworthy election security is key to keeping voters motivated to participate. Washington’s good news is that our process differs in key ways from Georgia and Florida. We have firewalls and other safety measures in place to identify and stop problems, plus our paper ballots can’t be hacked, according to the editorial. Also try the “My Vote” website mentioned. It’s reassuring to see “Your ballot has been accepted for tabulation” whenever you’re in doubt.
The editorial described our state’s superior approach, but we also have a top-notch local elections office team, headed by Auditor Greg Kimsey. If you have any doubt, consider attending a county training session for election observers to learn how our local system is run. When ballots are handled, observers from the Republican or Democrat party and League of Women Voters can all be present. Work with your party and you might become one of them.
The editorial urged Washington officials to maintain diligent efforts to ensure voting integrity. Clark County officials are investing in an updated system to do just that. Contact the Clark County Elections Office and check it out for yourself. Stay informed and involved.
