As of 6:50 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4, 10,000 provisional and 1,000 mail in ballots remain to be
counted, according to the Riverside County Registrar of Voters office.
Riverside County Registrar of Voters Rebecca Spencer said all votes are expected to be tabulated by the Dec. 7 deadline set by California law. Under the law, known as the “Official Canvass,”
county elections officials must report final results to the Secretary of State by Dec. 7.
While many have expressed concerns over their votes being counted, Spencer said that it
typically takes anywhere from 28-30 days to finish tabulating and certifying election results.
With the deadline looming, Spencer said that they are on track to have all votes accounted for by the deadline.
Spencer said the county begins releasing election results as early as 8 p.m. – beginning with early arriving vote-by-mail ballots – on election night.
After the polls close, the Registrar’s office begins to count the ballots received Monday, Nov. 5 and Tuesday, Nov. 6, Spencer explained. Ballots are signature checked against voter registration cards and sliced open by hand to prepare for machine counting. All votes for the Nov. 6 election had to be postmarked by election day and received by Friday, Nov. 9 to be counted.
