Did Election Office SNAFU Cost Anderson?
In catching up with the news and The Sound after a few days off, I noticed a story where Sheriff Anderson says the Election Office mismatched voter names to addresses. The Elections Office admits to the error but did it cost Anderson the election? Richard Cochrane, Anderson's consultant who originally faulted partying students, seemed to think so. Did the Anderson camp do their due diligence and test the list before they sent it? Did they run it versus prior lists of county voters? Maybe that's immaterial but it's hard to believe that one mailer would make a difference. What do you think?
