Cochise Not the Only County With Ballots Left

Seems that many counties were not able to count all their ballots on election day. The problem once again is the mail in ballots that are NOT mailed in or mailed in at the last minute.   It is time to STOP the PEVL 's.  If you absoutely do NOT need to send in an early ballot then cancel your early ballot now and go to the polls on election day!!From MCRC Updates:Arizona’s Counties Continue To Tabulate Ballots from the 2014 Primary Election.

HUD's new rules intend to erase all zoning codes in every community that takes CDBG funds. Cities that do not comply will jeopardize their funding but not right now.  HUD will wait until there are years worth of projects in various stages of completion and then will pull the…

Cochise College Property Taxes are being raised more than they are supposed to

Posted by mike compton on June 6, 2014 at 5:32pm 0 Comments

Please check your property tax statements for 2011, 2012, and 2013. 

In 2011 my Cochise College property taxes were $380.29.  Per Cochise College's Truth in Taxation Statement these taxes were supposed to be raised by 2%.  My 2012 Cochise College property taxes were $394.23 an increase of 3.65%.  If my Cochise College property taxes were raised by 2% (2011 amount x 1.02) they would have been $387.90.  My taxes were increased…

Software 'glitch' confounds election

SIERRA VISTA — The interim county elections director and two independent monitors of the elections office believe they may have narrowed down where things went wrong during Tuesday’s Primary Election, which resulted in erroneous data being added to the Secretary of State’s election results.

After the polls close, data is transferred electronically via modem from the ballot counting machines to the elections office. That data is then received and tabulated by an Election Systems & Software program, placed on a thumb drive, transferred from the thumb drive to a server, which then sends the data on to the state.

“Somehow, when the information on the server went to the state elections system, that number got corrupted,” said Jim Vlahovich, interim director of the Cochise County Elections Office.

Various checks are in place to ensure the data collected from the polls is accurate.

For instance, as the 49 voting precincts close after voting is complete, poll workers called “inspectors” report over the phone various information about their site, such as the number of voters and the number of provisional and early ballots cast.

That verbal information is then compared to the data being sent electronically by the voting machines.

“When those numbers come in, we check them with the verbal count to make sure they are accurate, and they were,” Vlahovich said.

In addition, a random number of ballot machines were tested by the Secretary of State’s Office on July 29 and ensured that the county’s machines were tabulating votes correctly. The machines also passed the county’s own testing, he said.

Vlahovich did not know if this testing included ensuring that the transfer of data to the Secretary of State’s Office was working correctly.

Elections office staff first noticed that something may be wrong on Tuesday night, when the print out of the results reported an abnormally high voter turnout of 62 percent.

Then, this morning, calls to the elections office prompted further inspection, resulting in the discovery that the server used to transfer the voting data to the state had crashed. Other voting irregularities were also uncovered, such as the voter turnout of Tombstone being higher than the number of registered voters.

So far it is unclear if there is any pattern as to how the results were modified from their actual figures.

In order to ensure an accurate tabulation of the ballots, the memory cards of all 49 precinct voting machines are being sent via helicopter to the Graham County Election Office, which uses the same model of machine as Cochise County and reported no issues on election day.

Cochise County Administrator Mike Ortega, along with elections office staff members Juanita Murray and Martha Reynolds, are also traveling to Graham County, Vlahovich said.

“This is not a people problem. It was not a problem with people getting the wrong ballots, this is a software problem,” said Pat Call of the Cochise County Board of Supervisors. “We are currently doing a forensic examination of the server.”

Call said he continued to have complete confidence in the elections department staff and the overseers brought in to help with the elections, which include Katie Howard, former clerk of the board, and Jodi Klein, former county administrator.

“We know there are a lot of people wanting to know the results and we are doing everything we can to expedite process,” he said. “We have posted some information on our website. We want to let people know we’re working as quickly as possible on it.”

Once the new ballot tabulations are released, they will still not include the approximately 3,100 remaining early and provisional ballots that have yet to be tabulated. That process is expected to last well into Thursday, Vlahovich said.

Jon Johnson, reporter, and David Bell, editor, of the Eastern Arizona Courier newspaper contributed to this story, as did Herald/Review Reporter Shar Porier.
