Voter Fraud Concerns in Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

PROSSER, Wash.-- The Benton County Auditor says voters in Washington have little to worry about all thanks to our statewide database.

Bobbie Gagner says the system makes sure voter information is correct. Including Date of Birth, Driver's License number, and the last four digits of your Social Security Number.

When you register in person you'll be asked to show your ID. If for some reason that doesn't happen, the database will show any false information. The same happens for voters who register by mail.

"If that information is not correct when it's submitted to the state, then it is bounced back to us and we have to contact that voter and get the updated information from them," said Bobbie Gagner, Benton County Auditor.

Staff at the Benton County Auditor's Office in Prosser, are still in the process mailing ballots out to voters.

You can still register to vote, but you have to go in person to the County Auditors office. And you only have until Monday, October 20th to get that done.

In Franklin County the auditor's office will have curbside voter registration on Saturday, October 18th, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
