Roughly 20,000 Local Ballots Left to Count

Posted By on Wed, Nov 4, 2020 at 5:03 PM

On top of the 41,189 ballots that have already been processed, Humboldt County Registrar of Voters Kelly Sanders estimates there are roughly 20,000 ballots yet to be counted, which would represent about 71 percent of registered voters.

For comparison, 60,983 Humboldt residents, or 74 percent of registered voters, cast ballots in 2016. (Find the latest election results here.)

Though the comparison seems lower than 2016, the number 0f Humboldt County registered voters increased by 2.8 percent this year. 

As required by law, before the Elections Office can continue counting ballots, the office must first sort and audit the ballots from polling locations to make sure that there were no problems on Election Day and that the final election night report is accurate.
