Seventh Post-Election Ballot Count Update for the 2022 General Election
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Dean C. Logan announced the seventh post-Election Night ballot count update for the 2022 General Election.
The update includes 131,611 ballots processed since yesterday’s update (November 16). The total election results count is now 2,129,498 which is 37.84% of registered voters. Election results can be viewed on LAVOTE.GOV.
The estimated number of outstanding ballots to be processed is 332,550. See estimates below:
- Vote by Mail ballots (VBM): 325,000
- Conditional Voter Registration ballots: 7,500
- Provisional ballots: 50
The estimated number of outstanding Vote by Mail ballots includes those postmarked by Election Day and received by November 15 (E+7). The estimate also includes ballots that are pending signature cures from voters whose signature on the Return Envelope was missing or did not match their registration record. These voters have been notified with instructions on how to cure their ballot to be counted.
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 in which the RR/CC processes and verifies all outstanding ballots to ensure that every eligible ballot cast by Election Day is counted.
The next ballot count update will be on Friday, November 18. 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.
