Ten days after election day, the Washington County Board of Elections finally marked the end of the election.
The Board of Elections has been working since mid October with early voting. Nearly a month later they finally tallied the last of their absentee and provisional ballots, on Friday November 16.
Deputy Elections Director Barry Jackson says the Board of Elections has worked night and day throughout the entire process to make sure every person’s vote counted.
“The staff was in the office over the weekends, Saturday and Sunday, processing provisional ballots. We have a lot of our election judges that come in and help us with canvassing the provisional and absentee ballots, so yeah a lot of work goes into it,” said Barry Jackson.
The last of the 150 absentee and provisional ballots that were cast today did not change the already projected election outcomes in Washington County.
