Logan’s on the stand…

Dean Logan, the man at the center of much of the election’s political storm is on the stand Wednesday morning.

Logan appears at the request of Democratic attorneys, who are trying to convince Judge John Bridges of two things: a) that the errors in November’s governor’s race weren’t nearly as widespread as Republicans maintain, and b) that the errors in pro-Gregoire counties were “more than offset” by errors in pro-Rossi counties.

Much of Republicans’ criticism has been directed at King County, where hundreds of “provisional ballots” were apparently fed into tabulating machines without first being checked to be sure that those voters were legitimate. The county repeatedly found ballots that were missed in the first tally, and last week, a staffer testified to falsifying a number in an election report.

So far this morning, Logan’s mainly testifying about his background — including why he took the job as the man overseeing King County’s election system.

“I have always been attracted toward the challenge of working toward public trust and confidence in the election system,” he testified.
