  • Here's what happens after the polls close on Election Day

  • What is the difference between unofficial and official results?

    Nov 04, 2016
    As we approach Election Day, we thought it would be good to review unofficial and official election results. We often receive questions about what makes these two types of results different. On Election Day, after the close of polls, results are reported from each precinct or polling place to the County Election Office. These are the results you see on the news and on your State or County website on Election Night. These results are considered unofficial results.
  • Provisional Ballots 11.3.16

    Nov 03, 2016
    A provisional ballot is a paper ballot and all contests listed are the same as the regular ballot used in the polling place. A provisional voter marks their ballot selections and then places the ballot in a sealed envelope, which is placed in a sequestered, safe container with other provisional ballots. These ballots are returned to the Local Election Office after the close of polls on Election Day.

    Every Presidential Election year we receive questions about the differences between caucuses and primary elections. Presidential Preference Primaries and Caucuses are an opportunity for voters of each Party to vote to determine their Party’s candidate for President and/or to choose delegates to participate in that Party’s National Convention, where the Party officially nominates their candidate for President.
