The secret vote?

You’d think that after all the complaints about King County elections over the last four years, they’d go out of their way to open things up to the max. But no.

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/338468_noresultsxx.html: “the King County elections office has refused to release precinct-by-precinct vote totals until the vote is certified — even though election results are an open record under state law and these specific records can be easily generated by county election software. Critics called it unwise and possibly illegal.”

Oh, there’ll be a lawsuit on this. (Certainly should be.) Unless they wise up, quick.
