Benton County Auditor Says Two Ballots Won't Count

Posted: Updated:

BENTON COUNTY, Wash-- On Sunday KNDU talked to one Benton County voter who'd been mailed two ballots. The auditor's office says there are a couple of reasons this could happen. 

If you change addresses, you may get two ballots, or if you registered with a different date of birth, but the auditor's office has procedures that would red flag two ballots being turned in by the same person.

"We absolutely encourage that any voter who receives material that doesn't make sense, they receive two ballots or are missing a piece of their ballot please give our office a call because we are always happy to look into and see what the problem is," said Brenda Chilton, Benton County Chief Deputy Auditor.

If ballots are questionable a canvassing board will take a closer look at them.
