Rossi, but not all supporters, confident of clean vote count

Posted by David Postman

Visitors to Eastern Washington report seeing Dino Rossi for governor signs emblazoned with this line:

Don't Let Seattle Steal This Election!

That seemed at odds with what I've heard Rossi say about changes implemented since the problematic 2004 governor's election count. He assures voters that Secretary of State Sam Reed has purged the voter rolls of felon voters and names of deceased voters.

Rossi spokeswoman Jill Strait says the signs are not an official product of the campaign. And she says they do not reflect Rossi's view.

Dino wouldn’t be running again if he thought it was going to be the same playing field.

Since the last election, Secretary of State Sam Reed has created a statewide voter database and wiped off thousands of registrations that shouldn’t have been on the voter rolls. This is a good thing and we are confident that the election will be managed properly.
