How the Numbers Work

March 18, 2015 - We are receiving inquiries about the percentages in the 37th Senate District Election.  It's important to clear up the fact, as noted in our reported totals, that we included the write-in candidate totals in last evening's tally.

As of the last report from yesterday's totals there were 1,149 under and overvotes. Since we have already included the qualified write-in votes last evening, what's left are unqualified (and will not be included in the totals). The percent assigned to each candidate is calculated using the votes received by the candidates, not the total ballots cast.

There are still additional ballots to be counted, which will be updated each day at 5:00 p.m.
