Imperial County General Election Update - November 13, 2018
Today, the Imperial County Registrar of Voters has issued another "Unofficial Election Results" update on the Registrar's website at www.co.imperial.ca.us/regvoters for the November 6, 2018 General Election. The unofficial update includes all polling place voters and vote-by-mail ballots received; however, this is not a final tally of all ballots.
As of today, there are 3,074 unprocessed provisional and 69 conditional voter registration provisional ballots yet to be processed. The Registrar's office may not begin counting provisional ballots until all voter rosters are reviewed and voter's history is applied to the voter's record. The procedure for tallying provisional ballots is just as lengthy as processing vote-by-mail ballots, but require some additional steps. This process includes:
• Staff members work one precinct at a time and one provisional envelope at a time;
• Each voter of a provisional ballot must be located on the Election Management System (EMS) identified by name, address and/or birthdate. Updates to changed addresses are made at this time;
• Signatures are validated through the EMS; and
• Provisional ballots are crossed referenced to precinct voter rosters to ensure multiple ballots were not cast.
The Registrar's staff will continue to work diligently to complete the election canvassing process and update the public of results in a timely manner. The Registrar's office wishes to thank the public for their patience as they continue to conduct canvassing for this election.
