County f inalizes election results

 

November 22, 2018



Sanders County Elections staff finalized the Nov. 6 general election results on Tuesday with the election canvass. The canvass presents the final results of the election, including any outstanding or provisional ballots cast on Nov. 6.

No outcomes for local races were changed with the canvass results. “It went really, really smooth,” said Sanders County Clerk and Recorder Nichol Scribner.

During the canvass on Tuesday, 54 provisional ballots were accepted and counted, and 10 were rejected. Scribner said that ballots are rejected if the issue with them cannot be resolved. Such issues include signatures not matching, lack of a signature, or if the voter has already cast a ballot. For example, Scribner said that if a voter moves from county to county and has already cast an absentee ballot, then goes to vote in the new county of residence, the ballot would be rejected.

Scribner commented that the turnout for the election was great. Now that the general election is over, the office is looking forward to school elections and will begin a new round of the voter registration process. The office will send thousands of postcards to voters to verify information. Scribner said that a large percentage will be returned as undeliverable because people do not update their addresses. She noted that it’s important for voters to update their information.
