Clackamas County, Oregon (CNN) - An elections worker in Oregon could face criminal charges for ballot tampering.
Sources tell Portland T-V station K-G-W that the election worker filled in Republican preferences on spaces that voters left blank.
It's not clear how many ballots were affected.
The woman's name has not been released and authorities won't talk specifics, due to the on-going nature of the investigation.
"I can't also talk about how she was caught, but what I can tell you she was caught because of the security measures we have in place."
It's not clear if the worker handled ballots in any previous elections.
So far, there's been no arrests.
A state elections monitor has been called in to help watch for any other irregularities in Clackamas County.
