First Post-Election Night Ballot Count Update for the 2022 General Election
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Dean C. Logan announced the first post-Election Night ballot count update for the 2022 General Election.
The update includes 134,099 ballots processed since Election Night. The total election results count is now 1,452,192 which is 25.80% of registered voters. Election results can be viewed on LAVOTE.GOV.
The estimated number of outstanding ballots to be processed is 883,300. See estimates below:
- Vote by Mail ballots (VBM): 862,000
- Conditional Voter Registration ballots: 21,000
- Provisional ballots: 300
The bulk of Vote by Mail ballots included in the estimate was received through Election Day by the United States Postal Service or returned in person at a Ballot Drop Box or Vote Center.
The number of outstanding Vote by Mail ballots will increase as the RR/CC continues to accept ballots that are postmarked by Election Day and received through Tuesday, November 15 (E+7). These ballots are not included in the estimate.
Outstanding estimates are Countywide and are not currently available by jurisdiction as ballots are received and processed in batches from throughout the County. 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, November 11. The full schedule of post-election result updates can be viewed on the Canvass Update Schedule. Any changes or additions to the update schedule will be posted on our website.
