Mason County welcomes observers to watch all processes that are conducted throughout the election to help ensure that our election process is accurate, secure and transparent.
There are two ways to observe, through our 24/7 live stream, link below, or in person. To view in person the major political parties can each designate two observers to be in the ballot processing room, contact the Mason County Democratic Party or Mason County Republican Party. If you are not associated with one of these parties but would like to observe please contact the Elections Department for further information. All observes must participate in Observer Training to observe in person.
