Notice To Count Ballots At A Central Location
All polling place ballots for the November 4, 2014 Statewide General Election will be counted election night at a central location. The central location is located at 501 Low Gap Rd, Rm. 1020, Ukiah; the County Clerk-Recorders office according to Susan M. Ranochak, Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder.
Due to additional security procedures, all polling place ballots will be counted on election night at the central location – and not at each individual polling place. There will not be result tapes posted at the polling places, but they will be posted at the central location after the ballots are counted. Each polling place will still have the voting booths and have one TouchScreen Voting machine for the ADA requirements. Each polling place will also have at least one ballot box for the voters to deposit their voted ballots into. Once the polling places close, pollworkers will seal the voted ballots and take down the TouchScreen. The voted ballots and the TouchScreen will be transported to the County Clerk-Recorder’s office in Ukiah for counting. The County’s website will be up-dated on election night after the polls close at 8:00 p.m. with election results as often as we receive the polling place ballots. The County’s website address is: www.co.mendocino.ca.us For additional information, please contact the County Clerk’s Office by calling 707 234-6819.
