Ballot Returns Remain Steady

Number of Ballots Coming In Slow but Steady

On Monday we received 12,480 ballots followed on Tuesday with 14,385. It has slowed later in the week (9,000 on Wednesday and 7,500 on Thursday). We expect weekend volume to pick up again.

Boxes Waiting for a Home

Our New Supply Boxes

Shown above our new election supply boxes are ready for election supplies. Our new box, which has an attached lid, will make loading and unloading supplies more efficient. We have added quality assurance checks to the box as well to verify the proofing process.

Voting Booth Check Ups

We have begun the final preparation of our voting booths for the June 5th Primary Election. We are putting these booths through their paces - we are cleaning the screens, applying seals and stickers, testing and inserting audio cards. We have to complete nearly 10,000 by May 25th.
