For Immediate ReleaseOctober 27, 2015
First results available shortly after 8 p.m. election night on www.marinvotes.org
San Rafael, CA – If you’ll be antsy on election night and excited about the first returns, the Marin County Elections Department is poised to deliver the numbers for you on its election results webpage. Results of vote-by-mail ballots returned before November 3 will be available shortly after 8 p.m. on election night.
The first report from precincts is expected at about 9:30 p.m. election night and will be updated about every 30 minutes thereafter until all ballots are returned from the polls by approximately 11 p.m.
Vote-by-mail ballots dropped off at polling places on election day will be processed in the days following the election.
Registrar of Voters Lynda Roberts has a reminder for those who vote by mail. “Don’t forget to sign your return envelope,” she said. “Every election we receive many ballots that haven’t been signed, and we can’t process the ballot unless the return envelope is signed. And if you mail your ballot back, it must be postmarked on or before election day.”
You can use the new Voter Dashboard to check the status of your vote-by-mail ballot.
Updates to the election night results will be posted to the Elections Department website, www.marinvotes.org, every Friday by 5 p.m.
Follow the Elections Department on Facebook.
