Imperial Valley Press - - NEWS - —Tom Bo­dus, tbo­dus@iv­pres­son­

There were no sur­prises in the lat­est elec­tion up­date from the Im­pe­rial County Reg­is­trar of Vot­ers.

Trends and rank­ings ob­serv­able in pre­vi­ous up­dates re­mained true in the up­date posted at 4:57 p.m. Thurs­day.

The Reg­is­trar’s of­fice will is­sue an­other re­sults up­date to­day on its web­site at­pe­­ers.

The un­of­fi­cial up­date in­cludes all polling place vot­ers and some vote-by-mail bal­lots. This is not a fi­nal tally of all bal­lots.

Since the Reg­is­trar’s of­fice is re­quired to con­tinue re­ceiv­ing vote-by-mail bal­lots from other coun­ties or that were mailed by Nov. 6, the num­ber of un­pro­cessed bal­lots has in­creased.

As of Thurs­day, there are ap­prox­i­mately 12,700 un­pro­cessed bal­lots, the Reg­is­trar’s of­fice said. In­cluded in this fig­ure are 9,560 vote-by-mail bal­lots, 3,074 pro­vi­sional and 69 con­di­tional voter reg­is­tra­tion pro­vi­sional bal­lots.

Fur­ther­more, the Reg­is­trar’s of­fice an­tic­i­pates re­ceiv­ing ad­di­tional bal­lots. The Reg­is­trar’s of­fice said it plans to re­lease up­dates reg­u­larly un­til all vote-by-mail bal­lots are counted. Ad­di­tion­ally, pro­vi­sional bal­lots may not be counted un­til all voter ros­ters are re­viewed and voter’s his­tory is ap­plied to voter’s record.

The Reg­is­trar’s of­fice said its staff will con­tinue to work dili­gently to com­plete the elec­tion can­vass­ing process and up­date the pub­lic of re­sults in a timely man­ner. It added it “wishes to thank the pub­lic for their pa­tience” as can­vass­ing con­tin­ues for this elec­tion.
