Westdale election extravaganza

Election results for Linn County will be posted on a big screen at Westdale Mall’s center court Tuesday night.

Absentee results will go up at 9:05 p.m., and the rest of the precincts will follow.

“In a perfect world, everything will be done by 9:30 p.m.,” Auditor Joel Miller said.

In this world, with all its imperfections, the final results of local races may not be announced until 10:30 p.m.

Generally, the auditor’s office is where the candidates gather to watch as the results roll in from around the county and flash on the overhead. This year, the auditor’s office will be empty, because the county administrative office was flooded in June.
