Canvassing board to rule on flagged ballot as razor-thin school election recount wraps

Two ballots have been added to the total vote count for the Snoqualmie Valley School District's bond issue, as approved by the King County Election division's Canvassing Board this morning.

The board will meet again at 2 p.m. to review the recount results, and make a ruling on the intention of the voter on a ballot that was flagged yesterday during the recount. The board will also rule on any ballots that are flagged during the final count today.

Kim van Ekstrom, King County Elections Communications Director, said at around 10:30 a.m. that another issue had arisen with the recount, but she didn't have specific details.

She was confident that all of the questions and issue will be resolved today.

"They will certify the results this afternoon," van Ekstrom.
