Washington County Works to Restore Voter Confidence

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA)-- Nationwide statistics show most Americans are confident their votes will be counted accurately. 
But, with the recent ballot mistakes in Washington County, some local voters could feel a little anxious.
Washington County Election Coordinator Jennifer Price said those ballots were wrong because of a re-district problem from the census back in 2011, causing a precinct and two streets to be placed in the wrong voting district. 
The impacted voters were sent an additional ballot with the corrected race on it.
Before this election, the commission goes through a logic and accuracy process, looking at every precinct and voting district to make sure things like this don't happen.
Now, she says the data has been updated and all voters should be receiving accurate ballots.
She also said, if you think something is wrong with your ballot, don't cast it. 
Approach a supervisor and tell them which race you think you're qualified to vote for.
They will then call the County Clerk's Office to verify your information and check to see if you have the right ballot.
