Yakima County Auditor says they won't count close to 2,000 primary ballots

YAKIMA, Wa -  The Yakima County Auditor says they won't count close to 2,000 primary ballots because voters filled them out incorrectly.  

This is the first year that voters are required to vote by party for the primary elections.

County Auditor Corky Mattingly says some voters have selected a party on the ballot and then tried to vote for a candidate in another party.   In those instances, the vote for that race is not counted. She says all they can do is count the votes that are filled in correctly.
