Spencer Challenges Vote Handling

Huckleberries Online and a number of other local media just received a news release from Larry Spencer, challenging the way Bonner County certifies absentee ballot signatures. In bold letters to launch the release, Spencer writes: “County Clerk (Marie Scott) has ‘certified’ absentee ballot signatures using staff, not election judges in violation of Idaho Statute. Election poll challenger (Larry Spencer) arrives on designated day to find that certification of signatures has already been completed, and he is not allowed to compare the ballot envelope signatures to those on file.” You can read the entire release here. At least, now we know where Spencer has been hiding out.

Question: What do you make of the Spencer’s complaint in the news release — that Bonner County isn’t using proper procedure to certify absentee ballot signatures?
