Peninsula Daily News

Outcomes of the April 22 special elections remained the same after Clallam and Jefferson counties’ elections officials certified the election Tuesday.

Cape Flattery School District’s four-year, $375,000 maintenance-and-operations levy passed with a final vote of 260 yes and 91 no for 74.1 percent approval.

The district had 351 of 1,140 voters return ballots — a 30.8 percent turnout.

Sequim School District’s $154 million construction bond proposition was rejected districtwide with a final vote of 5,400 yes and 6,704 no for 55.4 percent rejection.

The district had 12,460 of 22,998 voters return ballots — a 54.2 percent turnout overall.

The measure was defeated by 55.3 percent in Clallam County (5,341 yes to 6,609 no) and by 61.7 percent in Jefferson County (59 yes to 95 no).

Clallam County voters returned 12,306 of the 22,725 ballots issued — a turnout of 54.2 percent.

Jefferson County voters returned 154 of the 273 ballots issued for a turnout of 56.4 percent.

Clallam County’s canvassing board reviewed 127 ballots Tuesday morning, rejecting 124 of them.

Of the rejected, two were signed via power of attorney, 16 ballot signatures didn’t match signatures on file, 70 were not signed, and 36 were postmarked after the April 22 election date.

Jefferson County’s canvassing board rejected one ballot that was returned without a signature.

Clallam County Auditor Patty Rosand said many other ballots had other signatures issues, but problems were cleared up with election workers.

Those whose ballots were postmarked too late will soon receive letters from Rosand’s office.
