The Presidential Primary took place on March 3, 2020. We are almost finished all of the post election follow up. The hand count and write in votes have all been tabulated and the official election results have been certified, posted and reported to the State Elections Division. Jennifer is almost done updating the voter activity in the State Voter Registration Information System (VRIS) and the tabulators, poll pads, supply crates and Warden's crates are  being set up for the local election on April 7th.  The ballot positions have been set and we are waiting for the draft ballot to come back for approval. Once that is done, we will send out our memory cards and security keys to be programmed for this next election.   Files will be uploaded and tabulators will again be tested prior to the election. Election workers have already been scheduled and confirmation letters will be going out to them shortly. A huge thank you to my staff and all of the dedicated election workers for their outstanding performance! I rely on their endurance as we take a collective, restorative breathe and push forward to the next election!McCarthy Large Gym
