Jefferson County election coordinators Quinn Grewell, left, and Betty Johnson work to duplicate ballots that were damaged or had decisions crossed out and changed. The ballot answers are copied from the original ballot to a clean one, matching notated numbers, by a team of two. After the ballots are copied, an additional two people audit the work of the first team to guarantee accuracy. This process allows the ballot machine to correctly record the choices made by voters and the ballots “to be duplicated as the voters intended,” Johnson said. (Zach Jablonski/Peninsula Daily News)
