King County election chief under fire

Two Republican council members call on Logan to resign


The top election official in King County should resign, two Republican members of the County Council said yesterday in reaction to the latest blunder to come to light in the troubled election department.

That problem -- the discovery during the last 10 days of 93 valid mail-in ballots mistakenly left out of the vote count in the November election -- triggered angry reactions from both Republican and Democratic council members.

But the performance of election director Dean Logan was endorsed yesterday by his boss, King County Executive Ron Sims, who appointed Logan in 2003 to straighten out earlier problems in the department.


The GOP in January filed suit to set aside the results of the governor's election, which gave Democrat Christine Gregoire a 129-vote victory after a hand recount of more than 2.8 million ballots cast statewide. Much of the Republican fire has been concentrated on King County, where Gregoire rolled up a 150,000-vote plurality. The trial of the lawsuit has not begun.
