For many years the Whatcom Conservation District counted the ballots. Starting last year, the Whatcom County Auditor’s Office was paid to count them. The auditor’s office provided a locked box for the deposit of ballots. The day after the election the election officer and a polling officer took the sealed ballots boxes to the Courthouse, per the Whatcom County Auditor’s office direction to maintain security of ballots and the ballots were counted at the Courthouse.
