▶️ Clackamas county completes counting blurred primary ballots


OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) — Officials in Clackamas County, Oregon, have have finished duplicating the majority of primary election ballots that were rejected by vote-counting machines because of a printing error that resulted in blurred barcodes on tens of thousands of ballots.

Elections officials were forced to transfer the voter’s intent from a spoiled ballot to a fresh one that could be read by the machines.

The county will now focus on counting military and overseas ballots and processing ballots that need voter signature resolution. Elections officials expect to certify all election results by June 13, the state’s deadline.
