Secretary Adams' Statement on Reporting Election Results

“Under normal circumstances, the State Board of Elections receives and reports all preliminary election results on election night. However, because we, like other states voting during the pandemic, have accommodated voters by letting them mail ballots on election day, not every vote will be in hand by election night. Moreover, many counties, including our two biggest, have chosen to withhold even partial results until June 30, the extended deadline for all counties to report returns to the Secretary of State.
Consequently, while our Office will provide, in informal but transparent fashion, any county results we receive on election night, neither our Office nor the State Board of Elections will be able to offer the usual online election night reporting at Complete but unofficial results must be reported to the Secretary of State by 6:00 p.m. local time on June 30, and will be made available to the public at that time.”
