Pierce County says a few voters’ pamphlets are incomplete

Two News Tribune readers have called us recently to report receiving voters’ pamphlets from Pierce County that skip some pages and duplicate others. The auditor’s office said today that the county’s printer has acknowledged the problem but says it wasn’t widespread.

“We have only received three calls total on this subject,” said Mary Johnson-Hall, Pierce County elections supervisor. “We spoke to our vendor in mid-July when the first call came in. I spoke to the Vice President of the company today and he assured me that this is a very isolated incident. It most likely occurred at the end of a run when a voter pamphlet was put together manually by hand.”

Voters who received incomplete pamphlets – and are now trying to fill out their ballots without the benefit of all the candidate statements – can view the guide online at www.piercecountywa.org/elections, or they can pick up a complete pamphlet at the auditor’s office or local libraries.
