This came over the wire from the Registrar of Voters on Friday…

Ballot Counting Wrapping Up

Provisional Processing to Start Monday

Shown at right this afternoon we have been cleaning the padding gum off of paper ballots cast at polling places. Our update this evening will include the majority of vote-by-mail, paper ballots and duplicated ballots.

Needles in a Haystack

We are in the process of locating printers from our voting booths so that we can conduct the random 1% manual tally required by law of precincts from the June 5th election.

Pulling Rejected Ballots

Shown at left are the stacks of ballots that contain small amounts of rejected ballots. These ballots did not scan due to unreadable barcode images. We must find each ballot and scan it so that it is included in the final tally.

Final Clean-Up Process

1% Manual Tally Next Up

Our teams that will be conducting the manual count of 1% of precincts can be seen above preparing. They will also manually tally any device that did not come back with a complete security seal.

Poll Workers 4,800  |  VBMs Mailed: 684,836  |  VBMs Returned: 277,348

Undeliverable Rate Going Down

Shown at left are the undeliverable vote-by-mail ballots for this election. We have instituted several new initiatives in an effort to update voter addresses before they notify us (many do not). Our undeliverable rate for the June 5th election was 3.37% and in June of 2010 it was 3.7%. We expect this number to reduce even further in November.
