Statement from Catherine McMullen to Voters Regarding the Current Status of May Primary Election Results in Our County

Good morning Clackamas County voters and Oregon elections community –

As an experienced election administrator and Clackamas County voter I am extremely concerned about the continued lack of accountability, transparency, and timeliness coming from the current clerk in response to the barcode errors and extreme delay of results reporting for the May Primary election. I wanted to share important information this morning about what the sparse results from last night show and more importantly what they do not show. Some badly needed context should be provided.

As you may know, the Election Night results reported from the current county clerk are severely incomplete and do not provide sufficient information, reporting heavily skewed results from only 15.78% of ballots returned by end of day Monday. We do not yet know the number of ballots returned on Election Day, nor the outcome or even the trend with most if not all contests in our county, as well as key state and federal contests.

Secretary of State Shemia Fagan issued a statement late last night as I was arriving home from my work as an election administrator. The full statement is below and linked.

Statement from Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan on Clackamas County Elections Results Delay

SALEM, OR —  The following is a statement from Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan on the Clackamas County Elections Results Delay:

“As Oregon’s chief election officer – and a Clackamas County voter — I am deeply concerned about the delay in reporting from Clackamas County Elections tonight. While I am confident that the process they are following is secure, transparent and the results will be accurate, the county’s reporting delays tonight are unacceptable. Voters have done their jobs, and now it’s time for Clackamas County Elections to do theirs.

“In recent days, my office and other counties have offered extra personnel to help with timely reporting. We eagerly await a response from county elections officials on how we can aid in the timely processing of results. I am disappointed that we have not seen more urgency from elections officials in Clackamas County.”

Here is my brief, expert analysis working with the same limited data we all have:

We received one unofficial report of results late last night, with a run time of 7:14 PM that included only 10,356 tallied votes. It is important to note, as the current clerk admitted to the Oregonian on Monday, that these results are heavily skewed as the majority of ballots affected by the barcode error were Democratic ballots, while the Republican and Nonaffiliated ballots were largely unaffected. As of early Wednesday morning we still do not have a report from the current clerk as to how many total ballots she had received as of Election Night, and we also do not know how many ballots there are with barcode errors that need to be duplicated or what the party breakdown is on those ballots (Democratic, Republican, or Nonaffiliated). 

We can, however, look at the turnout for the Governor’s contests to see what the breakdown is of voted ballots from this small sample. Of the 10,356 ballots reported, only 1,882 voters made a choice in the Democratic Party Governor’s race (48 undervotes, 2 overvotes) for a total of 1,932 Democratic Party ballots included in the first report of results. By contrast,6,352 voters made a choice in the Republican Party Governor’s race (138 undervotes, 36 overvotes) for a total of 6,526 Republican ballots included in the first report of results. That leaves 2,072 Nonaffiliated ballots.

The percentage break down of the current count is:

Total Ballots Reported 10, 356 100%

Democratic Party ballots   1,932 18.66%

Republican Party ballots   6,352 61.34%

Nonaffiliated ballots   2,072 20.00%

The initial results are heavily skewed toward reporting Republican Party choices; this is particularly important to note in the nonpartisan contests at the state and local level including County Commissioner Position 2 and 5. We should expect as voters for the outcomes of all contests to be updated and become clear as more information is provided, but in particular nonpartisan contest results have the potential to change dramatically because of the current uneven ratio of ballots counted along party lines.

Currently the current clerk is reporting 65,645 ballots returned as of end of day Monday, May 16. That means only 15.78% of ballots returned by end of day Monday were included in last night’s late results reporting. This is a far cry from established practice across the state of county clerks reporting results at least through Monday’s returns. We do not yet know how many ballots were returned on Election Day, Tuesday, or how many cast on time ballots will arrive with the new postmark rule. What we do know is that our current sample of ballots is skewed and too small to be relied on for any definitive results reporting.

At the time of sharing this information, I do not have any additional information about the emerging situation at the elections office or how the current clerk will ensure all votes are processed and accurately counted on time, and importantly that the election is certified by the June 13 statutory deadline. According to the Clackamas County Elections posted returns and results schedule we will not have another update on results until tomorrow, Thursday May 19.

I will share more information as it becomes available. Thank you for voting and for holding our elected officials accountable. Clackamas County voters, I will be on your ballot in November.

Sincerely –

Catherine McMullen, Voter, Certified Elections Administrator, and candidate for Clackamas County Clerk

West Linn, OR– Clackamas County Clerk candidate and elections official, Catherine McMullen started an award winning voter education and outreach program because she wanted voters to be able to vote. “Over 1 million Oregon voters don’t end up voting in the primaries. I aim to change that so more folks can participate in our democracy.” Today is Election Day and McMullen is out doing her job as an elections administrator instead of campaigning to be Clackamas County’s top election official. “I walk my talk and have invested my career in becoming the best candidate for Clerk in Clackamas County so I’m working today! I’ll be back on the campaign trail once the ballots are in and counted.”  

Voters in Oregon can return their voted ballot to any Official Ballot Drop Site in the State of Oregon. Ballots must be dropped off by 8 PM or postmarked by TODAY if you choose to mail it. You can request to have it hand stamped at your local post office. If you choose to mail, make sure your ballot is postmarked for May 17 so it can be counted. If you put it in your mailbox, double-check that your mail carrier has picked up your ballot. 

The best way to return your voted ballot today is to an Official Ballot Drop Site. You can look up your nearest drop site by entering your residence address into a lookup tool from the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office: https://sos.oregon.gov/voting/Pages/drop-box-locator.aspx.

If you need help with your ballot, it is not too late. County Clerk offices are required to be open each Election Day from 7AM – 8PM to assist voters. The elections office in Clackamas County is located at 1710 Red Soils Ct. in Oregon City.

Unofficial election results will be available shortly after 8PM tonight on the Secretary of State’s website https://results.oregonvotes.gov.

West Linn, OR.– Your ballot must be mailed and postmarked or returned to an Official Ballot Drop Site by May 17 before 8pm. As an Oregon voter you can return your ballot to any Official Ballot Drop Site in the state. To find your nearest drop site, visit the Secretary of State’s lookup tool and enter your residence address at:  www.oregonvotes.gov/dropbox.

If you need help with your ballot it is not too late. County Clerk offices are required to be open each Election Day from 7AM – 8PM to assist voters. The elections office in Clackamas County is located at 1710 Red Soils Ct. in Oregon City. 

Make a plan for how you will vote. Will you mail your ballot or drop it off? Have you located your official drop site? Do you have the address or contact information for your closest clerk’s office if you make a mistake on your ballot or run into trouble? Do you know where to go to check that your ballot has been received? You can do that at the Oregon Secretary of State’s website: OregonVotes.gov/myvote

As an experienced and certified elections administrator, Catherine McMullen is running to be Clackamas County’s next Clerk and head elections official. McMullen is responsible for creating and implementing an award winning voter education and outreach program for Oregon voters and wants to ensure they know just what to do to have their voices heard. “I take voting and elections administration very seriously. Without clear communication and accurate information, voters cannot exercise the fullness of their rights as citizens. When I take office, I pledge to make our elections processes precise, transparent, and accountable.”

The current clerk has a decades-long track record of misinforming voters, making costly ballot errors that result in re-prints, and hiring elections workers who have tampered with ballots. Most recently, Clerk Hall announced that up to two thirds of Clackamas County’s ballots had been misprinted with blurry barcodes, a scenario requiring hand duplication and thousands of dollars in additional labor costs to meet the challenge. 

McMullen says a change is needed. “The current clerk has had plenty of time to become competent in the position and has failed to do so. It’s time for her to step aside so our elections can be accurate and secure for all voters.”

You can find out more about McMullen’s campaign at: ClackamasVoice.org. The County Clerk contest will be on the November General Election ballot.

Election FAQ: Questions Candidates and Voters may have about Clackamas County’s Ballot Barcode Printing Errors

This guidance is based on what we know so far, on May 5th. We will share out new updates if information changes.

Will my voted ballot be counted if the barcode is blurred?

Yes, every valid ballot will be counted.  If the barcode on your ballot is blurred it will be duplicated by hand, by two sworn elections officials from different political parties so that it is machine readable and your vote can be accurately counted.

Should I turn in my ballot early? Should I encourage voters to turn in their ballots early?

You should turn in your ballot as soon as you are done voting. You have two choices in returning your ballot: 1) Mail your ballot back, postmarked on or before Election Day, May 17, 2022, no stamp needed! or 2) Return your ballot to any Official Ballot Drop Site in the state before 8:00 PM on Election Night, May 17, 2022. You can find your nearest Official Ballot Drop Site at www.oregonvotes.gov/dropbox

Will this change the outcome of the election?

No, this will not change the outcome of the May Primary Election.  Your vote will be counted.  Duplication of affected ballots will take more time and dramatically increase staffing costs. It may delay reporting of results.

How much longer will it take to count the votes and know the outcome of the election?

At this time we do not have enough information about how many ballots are affected and will have to be duplicated, and what staff resources are on hand to duplicate all affected ballots.  We should expect there to be fewer ballots in the first report of election results on Election Night shortly after 8 p.m. It all depends on actual volume and staff resources available.  

Results must be certified on or before June 13.  You can view the schedule of returns and results reporting here: https://www.clackamas.us/elections/returns-results

I would like to observe the ballot duplication process.

To be an election observer, reach out to your party leadership or reach out directly to the county elections office to schedule a time to observe the process. We encourage you to be an election observer and have a front row seat in our democracy.

All voters should have received their ballot by May 5!

Check your mailbox, if you haven’t received your ballot by mail delivery TODAY: May 5, now is the time to contact your elections office. Sometimes mail gets lost or misdirected.  Your elections office can inactivate your first ballot and send you a second active ballot.

Sometimes voters move and forget to update their address on their voter registration record. Anytime you move you need to update your voter registration. You can update your residence or mailing address up until 8 PM on Election Day. As long as you were already actively registered in Oregon you have the right to vote!

Current Clackamas County Clerk Announces Ballot Barcode Misprint

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, May 4, 2022

Contact: Jaime Mathis, jaime@jaimemathis.com 503-708-3249

Another Mistake in a Career of Missteps and Lack of Accountability

West Linn, OR. – In what has become almost de rigeur with the Clackamas County Clerk’s office around election time, a press release was issued today by Clerk Hall stating that an unknown number of ballots had their barcodes misprinted and would have to be duplicated by trained staff, resulting in higher labor costs and potentially delayed primary election results. 

The press release did not specifically name the printer in question, but upon investigation, Moonlight BPO was discovered to be the company which misprinted the ballots. While many county clerks offices have representatives at the printers to ensure printing accuracy, early sources indicate that there may not have been any election office oversight when the ballots were being printed.

Clerk Hall has come under closer scrutiny during this election with op-eds in local papers questioning her ability to run secure, reliable, and competent elections and pointing to Catherine McMullen, a trained, accredited, and seasoned elections official as the change Clackamas County needs. 

Many articles and press have been devoted to detailing the litany of election mistakes that Clerk Hall’s office has produced since her election 20 years ago. Ballot errors in the past have cost voters’ over 100K to reprint and in 2012 Clerk Hall was responsible for hiring a woman who committed election fraud by filling in blank spaces for her own  preferred candidates. She was convicted and spent 90 days in jail. 

The final cost in the May 17 election for the current mistake has yet to be determined and likely will not be available to the public until after Election Day. In the meantime, many more staff hours will have to be spent to oversee and maintain the security and transparency of the ballot duplicating process which takes around 5 minutes per ballot to complete. Ballot duplication is a process intended for small scale issues such as damaged or torn ballots not large printing errors. 

Clackamas County has 306,675 registered voters. If we assume that two staff get paid minimum wage and 10% of the ballots are misprinted, Clackamas County could be paying an extra $50-100K in labor depending on the full scope of the error. 

Voters in Clackamas County have called for Clerk Hall’s resignation over past election fraud and unnecessary expenditures. Former Clackamas Commissioner Chair, Lynn Peterson said, “Ms. Hall neglected the single most important duty of her office – to ensure that our elections run smoothly. This is not a matter of ideology, but of basic competence by a fellow elected official.”

So far, Sherry Hall has remained in her position as County Clerk, the top election official for the county. With the high rate of staff turn-over in the Clerk’s office in addition to the consistency of mistakes over two decades, challenger Catherine McMullen had the following comment: 

“These types of mistakes are preventable and erode trust between the citizens and our democratic processes. It is crucial to stop these costly errors so our elections can run smoothly, securely, and transparently. As a Certified Elections Administrator through the Oregon Association of County Clerks, I make it my business to get these critical details of election administration right. We must have accurate elections.”

Update May 5, 2022 – The Clerk’s office has shared with KOIN 6 news that likely two thirds of the 309,000 ballots have unreadable barcodes: https://www.koin.com/news/elections/defective-barcodes-found-on-clackco-ballots-ahead-of-primary-election/

Voters experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity have the right to vote!

You can register to vote even if you do not have a permanent address or are experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness. You still have the right to vote! 

When registering to vote your residence address can be any physical location within the county that describes where you spend time (park, library, church). If it is not a traditional residence address you can indicate the location with cross streets. This will help the elections official determine your precinct and ensure that you get the right ballot. 

Your mailing address is the address where you want your ballot mailed (PO Box, address where you can pick up mail, elections office if needed).  You can always pick up a replacement ballot at your elections office if your mailing address is no longer accessible to you.

The Voter Registration Deadline is 21 days before Election Day but if you are already registered to vote in Oregon, you can update your residence or mailing address any time up until 8PM on Election Day.


 ¡Los votantes sin hogar o no tienen una dirección estable de vivienda también tienen derecho a votar! 

Puede registrarse para votar incluso si no tiene una dirección permanente o está experimentando inestabilidad o falta de vivienda. ¡Aún tienes derecho a votar! Al registrarse para votar, su dirección de residencia puede ser cualquier ubicación física dentro del condado que describa dónde pasa el tiempo (parque, biblioteca, iglesia). Si no es una dirección de residencia tradicional, puede indicar la ubicación con cruces de calles. Esto ayudará al funcionario electoral a determinar su precinto y garantizar que obtenga la boleta correcta. Su dirección postal es la dirección a la que desea que le envíen su boleta (apartado postal, dirección donde puede recoger el correo, oficina electoral si es necesario). Siempre puede recoger una boleta de reemplazo en su oficina electoral si ya no puede acceder a su dirección postal. La fecha límite para el registro de votantes es 21 días antes del día de las elecciones, pero si ya está registrado para votar en Oregón, puede actualizar su domicilio o dirección postal en cualquier momento hasta las 8:00 p. m. del día de las elecciones.
