King County Canvassing Board Members

  • Auditor/Director of Elections: Julie Wise
  • Prosecuting Attorney’s Office: Kevin Wright
  • King County Council Representative: Carolyn Busch

A canvassing board is a public entity that conducts a formal assessment ("canvass") of an election. The assessment includes reviewing vote totals, determining validity of challenged ballots, certifying the vote and administering a recount. Every county in Washington must have a county canvassing board.

All King County Canvassing Board meetings take place at King County Elections headquarters in Renton, unless otherwise noted in the meeting description. All meetings are public meetings (RCW 42.30 ); all rules must be adopted in a public meeting (RCW 42.56 ).

By Washington state law, the county auditor serves as the county canvassing board chair; the other members are the county prosecuting attorney and the chair of the county legislative body. In each case, the member may select a designee, under certain conditions. Designations are formal and must be in writing and filed with the county auditor.
