Activity continues at election commission offices across the state. Douglas County Election Commissioner Brian Kruse says the counting of ballots will continue for the next several days.
Kruse says, “We start right in on provisional ballots. We are going to have thousands of those. We have seven days by law to accept or reject them. The ones that are accepted will be opened and we will count them. There are also some ballots that have not been counted from those that came in the mail and those we pick up from our drop boxes. The Election Day ballots will be picked up today, opened tomorrow and counted on Friday. Canvass Day for Douglas County is Wednesday, November 23rd so all election results will be official that day.”
Kruse says there were very few problems to report at the polls. He says there were observers at the polls and they were happy. He also talked to the Secretary of State’s office several times yesterday and they reported it was one of the smoother elections they have had statewide.
There were a few technical problems in Douglas County with ballot counting machines but Kruse says that did not impact the outcome of the election. He says technicians were on hand to correct the problem so the process could continue.
