OF NOTE: According to Skagit Elections, because of all the Prop 1 Freeholder Candidates listed on the ballot, it made the ballot abnormally large and the folding method used by the company who created the ballot was incorrect as scanning did not work properly with the computer on a large majority of the Skagit County ballots. This issue resulted in a significant delay in tabulation.
