At each absentee meeting, the Board will feed the approved absentee ballots returned prior to the meeting through our high speed central tabulator. Results from absentee ballots received by 5 pm on November 2 are not collected until Election Day. The vote totals from mailed absentee ballots will be among the first results released when the polls close at 7:30 pm.

The Board will meet on Thursday, November 12 to tabulate timely, approved absentee ballots received after 5 pm on November 2. These results will be added to the final tally to be certified at canvass on Friday, November 13 at 11 am.
