Kimberly Boulanger watches ballots fly out of a ballot counting machine in 2012 at the Whatcom County Courthouse in Bellingham. The machine reads 400 ballots a minute. Each voter’s identification is kept confidential and each ballot is hand inspected before being run through the ballot counting machine. A few stacks of ballots are hand counted after being run through the machine to verify accuracy.
