Six ballots wrong in Spangle Town Council race decided by two votes

A mistake by the Spokane County elections office may have affected the outcome of a razor-thin Spangle Town Council race, but there’s nothing that can be done because the election already has been certified. Six ballots were mistakenly sent to voters who live in unincorporated areas near – but not in – the town of Spangle earlier this year, Spokane County Auditor Vicky Dalton said Monday. Five of them were returned with votes cast in the Town Council race Ron Cockle won over Rebecca Johnson by just two votes.
