American Voters Insecure about election accuracy

TRI-CITIES, Wash. - Are you confident that your vote next month will be accurately counted?  If you have doubts you are not alone.

A new poll released from the Associated Press found that a third of the people surveyed said they are not confident of an accurate vote count during elections.

Tri-Cities voter Don Crospy said, "I think the system leaves itself open for manipulation.  All I can do is hope for the best."

Another local voter said, "There's always going to be problems and speculation but I'm pretty confident in our system."

According to the study the United States had the lowest level of voters compared to nine countries in the study.  It also found the confidence level in the U.S. was lower than many of the other countries.

With election day less than a month away Washington voters are sending in their votes.

Under new Washington laws voters must pick a party for the primaries but not for the general election.
