Washington: According to the Department of Licensing, a software error prevented the DOL from transmitting voter registration information to the secretary of state’s office. The Secretary of State’s office said most of the people who are affected by the Motor Voter error were already registered to vote. But election officials did identify 6,969 people who were not. The vast majority of them, 5,791, are women. Secretary of State Kim Wyman said that her elections staff will conduct daily tests going forward to confirm that Motor Voter registrations are being transmitted to the Secretary of State. The Department of Licensing also plans to conduct daily reconciliations.
