“Cured” and overseas ballots yet to be counted
PITKIN COUNTY, COLO. (Nov. 10, 2022) – Following a successful initial processing of ballots by the Pitkin County Clerk & Recorder’s office after this week’s General Election, the county is continuing its important post-election work.
A total of 9,485 votes cast by the Pitkin County electorate were processed by bipartisan poll workers at the end of Election Night, according to Clerk & Recorder Ingrid Grueter. That's 98 percent of all ballots. The 2022 General Election was November 8th.
Still to be decided are 132 ballots initially rejected by teams of election judges for reasons that could include signature discrepancy, identification required or an envelope that was not signed. Voters have until Nov. 16, or eight days after the election, to “cure” these ballots.
These voters have been mailed a letter from the Clerk & Recorder’s Office. Ballots from overseas voters, which had to be postmarked by Nov. 8, are also due Nov. 16.
The next State mandated reporting update is Nov. 18.
Upload was completed at end of Election Night
All ballots that could be counted on Election Night, were uploaded to the State of Colorado’s official website by 1:50 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9, in keeping with election rules from the Colorado Secretary of State.
Secretary of State Rule 11.9.4 requires counties to upload results at least once before 8 p.m. on Election Day, once before 9 p.m. and a final end-of-night upload to ENR, or Election Night Reporting.
