Vote check on Tuesday

Spokane County elections officials will be reviewing Tuesday morning some 200 ballots that were “remade” because of problems in the way voters originally makred their ballots.

But they aren’t inclined to review more than 7,000 ballots in that close 6th Legislative District race, which is the request from House Republicans.

The canvassing board Monday agreed to compare a batch of 200 remade ballots countywide with the original ballots. That group was held out of the count, so there’s no need to break the seals on the containers holding the other remade ballots.

If there are problems with that control group, they might agree to a complete check of all the remade ballots in the 6th. But no guarantees.
