The general election is more than two weeks old but there are still several votes to tally.

The general election is more than two weeks old but there are still several votes to tally.

Clallam County Auditor Shoona Riggs said the county elections office has about 84 ballots to tabulate that have valid postmarks or are ballots that initially were held for missing or mismatched signatures.

The elections office also has about 30 ballots that were pulled and sent to the canvassing board for determination on Nov. 23 of voter intent. The office has another 270 rejected ballots that have missing or mismatched signatures, late postmarks or other similar issues; these also will be presented to the canvassing board, Riggs said.

“These numbers change a little bit each day as we receive the trickling of ballots and voters respond to the letters we have sent them,” Riggs said.

A $49.3 million Sequim School District construction bond is close to meeting a 60 percent “super majority,” collecting 7,139 of the 11,988 ballots cast (59.55 percent).
