King and Snohomish Counties Violate Election Law

Stefan Sharkansky at Sound Politics has dug up evidence that King and Snohomish counties have violated election law because they cannot give a list of eligible voters for the 2004 election, or they have violated election law for not complying with a request under the Public Disclosure Act.

He also determined that there have been problems with King County's handling of votes before (from Secretary of State Sam Reed):

The county is not consistent in their ballot enhancement procedures. The reviewer observed that ballot enhancement, while done in full view of political observers, did not use the procedures outlined in the Washington Administrative Code. Inconsistencies in how this procedure is handled significantly increase the possibility of a successful election contest.

Illegal ballot enhancement is a long-term problem, apparently.
