My wife called me this morning, upon going to vote in person at the Snohomish County Auditor's office, that my name (Chris Nandor) was left off the ballot (for Henning PCO). It is on the paper ballot we received in the mail. She notified them of the problem and added me as a write-in candidate, and they said they would look into it, but at this point we don't know what caused the problem, what races it may affect (I am running uncontested, but there are several contested PCO races), and so on. I'm headed in to vote at noon, and I'll try to get to the bottom of it.
Update: I went and voted, and where my name should have been, there was a blank space. When I checked the space next to the blank space, and then got to the end, it showed my name in the review screen (and was printed to the paper ballot), but it just wasn't showing up in the selection section. Elections Manager Carolyn Diepenbrock told me they looked into it and apparently, this is only happening with my name, the name of the guy who was in the paper this morning criticizing the Auditor's office. Better me than someone in a contested race, but it's something they desperately need to fix for the general election.
