The Oregon Secretary Of State Kate Brown is investigating an unnamed Clackamas County election worker who is suspected of marking returned unmarked election ballots for Republican candidates. The elections office uses cameras as security device and apparently was able to capture evidence of the suspected felony crime. At this point, the election worker under investigation has not been named as this investigation is ongoing, but some candidates for office in Clackamas County now have the grounds for election complaints if the vote is close for some local offices.

Some voters only cast a vote for president and leave the rest of the ballot blank, in other cases some voters skip the presidential office, but only vote for state offices, leaving the unethical election worker the opportunity to cast many votes for candidates for office.

This investigation is ongoing, and no criminal charges have been filed against the election worker at this point.
