Clackistan vote count follies get more absurd

The clown act in the Clackamas County elections circus continues to amuse. They're still hand-duplicating ballots they received nearly three weeks ago, and now we learn that they can't even copy numbers straight. So was it 12,478? Or 14,278? They don't know.

But don't worry!  

A Secretary of State's office highlighted the fact that the results reporting websites are unofficial results that are completely separate from the official results that certify the election. 

Huh? How "completely separate" would that be?

At a certain point you start to wonder whether they are just in over their heads, or whether something more sinister is going on. In either case, the county clerk needs to get lost at the earliest opportunity.

We have paid far too little attention to our election systems in this country. It's not good.
