60 Union County ballots being challenged
Signature verification needed before ballots can be counted
Times change and so do signatures.
Union County Clerk Robin Church understands this as well as anyone in Northeast Oregon.
Church is responsible for helping prevent mail ballot election fraud in Union County. She and her staff are required by law to verify the signature on each mail ballot envelope. Every signature on a mail ballot envelope must match the signature on the voter’s registration card before it can be counted.
Church and her staff discovered 60 ballots with questionable signatures during the latest mail election which ended Tuesday.
“We are challenging these ballots,’’ Church said.
