Honorable Members of the Board of Supervisors,
I want to take this opportunity to provide you with a status update regarding the counting of votes from yesterday’s election and to let you know what you may expect for the coming days.
We estimate that approximately 120,000-150,000 Vote By Mail (VBM) ballots were dropped off at polling places yesterday and arrived at the ROV Office last night.  In addition, about 14,000 Provisional ballots were received at the polls.
Once the VBM ballots have been processed through our ballot sorting machine, we will have an accurate count of the number of ballots remaining to be tallied.  The goal is to complete the count of VBM ballots by this weekend.
Once the VBM ballots have been counted, we will begin validating and counting the Provisional ballots.  We anticipate that the validation and counting of the Provisional ballots should be completed by the end of next week.
Our website ( will be updated by 5:00 p.m. each day to reflect the latest counts.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Take care.
