Catherine McMullen, candidate for Clackamas County Clerk and certified elections administrator has prioritized voter education and outreach in the 15 elections she has run. “I will be an elections clerk that provides access to our democracy by ensuring that all citizens who are eligible to vote, know exactly how and where to exercise their rights and that the infrastructure is there to support well-run and timely elections.”
The current clerk has been the subject of intense scrutiny for her recent mismanagement of the May Primary Election in Clackamas County which resulted in over 6000 extra hours of labor and almost $600K in additional costs to taxpayers to address her mishandling of ballot barcodes being blurred and unreadable.
