The Benton County Elections Division is excited to launch our pilot observer program beginning with the August 2022 Primary Election. Attached to this e-mail you will see the policies, guide, and guidelines of our pilot observer program. In the next couple of weeks I will be sending out the process schedule for the Primary Election that observers are encouraged to attend as well as dates for our observer training.
Please keep in mind that we are piloting this program for this election and that changes may be made as we start the election cycle and determine if things may work better in a different way.
We encourage all parties to participate in this program.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
NOTICE: Please note the address for the Voting Center of the Auditor’s Office has changed effective April 01, 2022. We are now located at 2618 N Columbia Center Blvd., Richland, WA 99352.
