Alameda County Registrar of Voters begins post-election canvass process
Submitted By Ashley
The Alameda County Registrar of Voters Office began, on November 9, its post-Election Day canvass to account for every vote cast in the November 8 General Election, and begin the process of ensuring that all valid ballots cast are included in the CountyÕs certified election totals.
Activities included in the canvass include processing large numbers of vote-by-mail ballots that were received in the mail or dropped off at Election Day polling places on November 8 and reviewing provisional ballots.
Registrar of Voters Tim Dupuis said the County will post updated election totals to the RegistrarÕs website, http://www.acgov.org/rov/
Dupuis said he has directed his staff to provide regular updates and on Wednesday, November 16 and Friday, November 18. Staff will aim to post all updates between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Following each update, the Registrar will also provide updated totals of elections in the cities of Berkeley, Oakland and San Leandro that require the use of Ranked-Choice Voting.
Current results show 391,165 ballots cast in the November 8 election in Alameda County. This represents about 44 percent of the CountyÕs 888,709 registered voters. Under State law, Alameda County has until December 8 to certify its election results.
