Is there a more incompetent elected official in Oregon? I don't think so.
As Big Bird teaches us, "everybody makes mistakes", but this is ridiculous.
If there's one thing - one single, solitary thing - that an elections official should know, it's the date of election day.
But if you're Clackamas County Clerk Sherry Hall, screwing up the ballot deadline on the cover of the voters pamphlet is just another screwup in a long line of 'em.
In the latest embarrassment for the Clackamas County Elections Office, Wilsonville voters pamphlets for the March 12 special election ask voters to return the ballots no later than March 13, 2012.
The county will pay about $1,800 to send the corrections.
The ballots are actually due by 8 p.m. March 12, 2013, which is the date of the election.
