As voters, we turned out in record numbers. Now it’s time to make sure that every vote is counted. When it comes to election results, accurate is more important than fast! Election officials need more time to count absentee ballots because of extra security measures to verify the votes:

  • Sorting
  • Verification
  • Opening
  • Scanning & Review
  • Counting
  • Reporting Results

We must also remain vigilant about the mis- and disinformation being shared on social media. Remember not to engage with inaccurate posts or share them. Counter those messages with facts and only share information that you are certain is true. If uncertain, err on the side of caution or reach out to LWVUS for clarification.
