Jefferson County live-streaming ballot processing

In-person viewing still allowed by appointment

PORT TOWNSEND — Viewing the ballot processing for Jefferson County elections does not have to be done in person this year as officials will be live-streaming the process.

In-person election observing still will be permitted, but interested people must call ahead to schedule a time slot.

The scheduling requirement is because only one observer can be allowed at any one time due to space limitations, said Quinn Grewell, election coordinator.

Live-streaming will be available only while ballots are being processed. Times can vary depending on the number of ballots the staff are working on.

Processing takes place between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. with a lunch break, but may not last that entire time each day, Grewell said.

The team has started processing ballots. Tabulation begins the day before the election.

The live-stream can be viewed at co. jefferson.wa.us/1484/Election-Cameras.
