Here’s where Clark County’s ballot counting stands as of Wednesday
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Ballot tabulation continues at the Clark County Election Department Wednesday as the registrar’s office sifts through tens of thousands of ballots.
According to information provided by Joe Gloria, the county’s Registrar of Voters, there are at least 70,000 ballots that have yet to be reported in Clark County alone, as of this publishing date.
Breaking that number down, county spokespeople reported Wednesday afternoon that roughly 56,900 ballots were collected from drop-off boxes at the county’s more than 300 polling places on Tuesday alone. It is unclear when those results will be tabulated and reported.
The results of another roughly 12,700 ballots that arrived by mail Wednesday morning will not be reported until at least Thursday.
Gloria said every ballot that was cast in-person at voting machines on Election Day, with the exception of provisional ballots, has been counted.
Meanwhile, Wednesday evening, county officials’ reporting website reflected an additional nearly 15,000 ballots from Monday’s drop-off boxes combined with Tuesday’s postal service pick up.
BY THE NUMBERS
- 12,700 - Mail ballots received via USPS on Wednesday. Gloria said those are being tabulated and will be released by the end of the week.
- 5,555 - Provisional ballots to be verified and counted.
- 5,300 - Ballots that still need their signature cured in Clark County. Gloria said this number could grow.
- 56,900 - Ballots dropped off at voting centers on Tuesday.
About 5,300 ballots still need to be “cured” in Clark County, according to Gloria. If a ballot needs to be cured, it’s because the elections department noticed an irregularity in the signature between the ballot and the voter registration.
The Clark County Elections Department has a hotline for those who receive a notice that they need to cure their ballot. That hotline is (702) 455-6552.
