In L.A. County, after polling places closed, all voted ballots were sealed, secured and transported by sheriff’s deputies to be centrally tabulated at the RR/CC headquarters in Norwalk. Election Night counts include ballots at the polling places as well as Vote by Mail ballots received and processed up until Monday before Election Day.
Counting votes does not end on Election Night. The RR/CC makes sure all ballots cast are counted. After Election Night in a statewide election, there are thousands of ballots that need to be counted, including Vote by Mail ballots received on Election Day, provisional ballots, write-in ballots and damaged ballots. These ballots are counted during the 30-day period known as the Official Election Canvass. Ballots require additional review to verify voters are eligible to vote and write-in ballots were cast for qualified candidates.
California state law requires the RR/CC to complete and certify results within 30 days. This provision of the law recognizes the complexity of completing the ballot count and conducting a thorough audit of the election results to ensure accuracy.
