Second Post-Election Ballot Count Update for the Primary Election
Late ballot returns lead to an increased number of ballots to be processed post-election
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) announced the second post-election ballot count update for the Primary Election.
The update includes 266,166 ballots processed since Election Night. The total election results count is now 1,258,049 which is 22.11% of registered voters. Election results can be viewed on LAVOTE.GOV.
The estimated number of outstanding ballots to be processed is 365,820. See estimates below:
- Vote by Mail ballots (VBM): 365,000
- Conditional Voter Registration ballots: 570
- Provisional ballots: 250
The majority of VBM ballots included in the estimate are those postmarked by Election Day and received in the mail through today (E+7), in addition to those returned at an Official Ballot Drop Box or Vote Center on Election Day. All remaining ballots require validation – including signature verification, prior to clearance for tally.
The RR/CC prioritizes the timely processing, verifying, and counting of outstanding ballots in the Official Election Canvass. The Official Election Canvass is a 30-day period where the RR/CC processes and verifies all outstanding ballots to ensure every eligible ballot cast by Election Day is counted.
The next post-election ballot count will be on Friday, June 17. The full schedule of election result updates can be viewed on the Canvass Update Schedule.
