Every election there are “categories” of ballots that will be counted and have the potential to be counted as part of the 8th day processing after the election. For instance, military and overseas mail ballots and signature discrepancy cures can be received up until the 8th day after the election and still be counted. Because of the July 4 holiday, 8th day processing will actually occur on July 5, the 9th day after the election.


In this webinar, Boulder County Clerk & Recorder Hillary Hall will review all the types of categories (buckets, if you will) of ballots that the candidates should expect to be remaining the day after the election. This webinar is meant to help bring clarity in terms of how the final ballots are processed and what is and what may be outstanding the day after the election.This information is especially important if a contest is close.


Additionally, the webinar will cover the election night results process, watcher information, recount scenarios, and Colorado’s election audit (risk limiting audit).
