2023 April Special Election

Ballot Return Statistics

Please allow a few moments for the report to load.

*For the 2023 April Special Election ballot return statistics, ballots from Garfield and Whitman Counties are included in totals for Asotin County due to the extremely limited number of voters from Garfield and Whitman Counties present in the election.


Ballot Status Reports

Ballot status reports are posted after 5 p.m. every business day, beginning two weeks prior to the Election and continuing until the Election is certified.

Also known as the matchback report, the ballot status reports contain ballots received, accepted, or challenged. All voter information in these reports is public information per RCW 29A.08.710. The personally identifiable information of eligible individuals who are under the age of 18 (future voters) is exempt from public inspection and copying, except for the purpose of processing and delivering ballots, per RCW 29A.08.710. Usage of this data is subject to RCW 29A.08.740 and RCW 29A.08.720.

In these reports, “rejected” is a temporary term (in many cases) that means the ballot is being challenged. Most challenged ballots have until the day before certification to be cured with the proper form. The County Canvassing Boards, which met on May 5, are the only authority that can officially reject a ballot. For more information on challenged ballots, see our list of Ballot Status Codes.
