We had record volume of ballots dropped off at polling places on Election Day. In fact, when compared with 2014, we had a 217% increase in ballots left after Election Day (dropped off, provisionals, etc.). We will continue counting through the weekend.

Public Notice of Random Draw for Statewide Primary Election
We had about 45,000 provisional ballots cast on Election Day (most for voters who did not bring their vote-by-mail ballot with them). You can see in this photo that we are sorting provisional ballots by the city in which they were cast - this helps us to prioritize contests to focus on.
Quality Control Process for Ballots
We have a very stringent process for the quality control in the ballot scanning process. This includes ensuring that no ballot was scanned twice - we do not begin the tally process on ballots that have been scanned until they clear this quality control check.
