Raffey: Accuracy Over Speed

Kootenai County Chief Deputy Clerk Pat Raffee announced that Elections staff has posted by-precinct as well as write-in vote results to the website today. Click here and follow the links: As for the Elections results reporting delay that occurred Tuesday night, Raffee said “our ballot tabulator worked fine. The reporting software program seems to have a glitch about how many precincts were in the tally – it kept showing all 70 Election-day precincts reporting, even though about 10 precincts’ results were being uploaded at a time.” Just before midnight Elections management saw those incremental results contained accurate vote totals but inaccurate precinct counts. “Knowing most people were expecting the total results by midnight, we decided not to post until all 70 Election-day precincts were in fact contained in the total results,” Raffee continued/Kootenai County Clerk's Office.

DFO: Actually, I prefer accuracy -- and speed -- you know, the way it used to be.
