The upcoming Apr. 25 Special Election will have voters on Lopez Island deciding on a proposed hospital district, San Juan County Public Hospital District #2. Also on the ballot will be the election of five hospital commissioners, should the proposition pass.

A “Logic and Accuracy” test of ballot tabulating equipment used in San Juan County for the April Special Election is scheduled for Mar. 14. The test works by tallying the results of a prepared set of ballots to see if the results match the votes cast. The test will take place at 10:00 a.m. in the Elections Office located at 55 Second Street, Suite A, in Friday Harbor.

The test is performed before every election to ensure that tabulation hardware and software equipment are compliant with Washington State rules and will accurately count the votes.

All interested members of the public are invited to observe.

  1. Our neighbors on Lopez are about to vote on formation of a Hospital District. San Juan Island has had such a district for many years. I would question why the voters on Orcas are not considering a similar measure?
    AND, if all three major islands were to favor such an agency to provide health care, then perhaps we all should be working toward a single Hospital District for the whole County.
    This is a question which, from my perspective, begs for a meaningful discussion.
