Election Night Reporting in Yolo County

Election Night Reporting in Yolo County

Initial 2020 Presidential Primary Election results will be available across multiple formats on Election Night.  After 8pm on Tuesday March 3rd, the Yolo County Elections website www.yoloelections.org will begin displaying tabular results of all contests. Statewide contest results will be available via the Secretary of State website http://www.sos.ca.gov/.

In addition, the Yolo County Elections Office is continuing to provide an interactive Election Night reporting map that will display results. The maps are a collaboration between the Yolo County Elections Office and the Yolo County Information Technology Department. Individual maps for each of the local contests and Yolo County results for all State and Federal contest will be available. Each map will display the relevant contests for that area with the ability to display individual results by precinct.

“We piloted this program in the June 2018 Primary Election and provided a more robust model in the 2018 General Election that included all local contests,” says Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters. “We are pleased to continue to incorporate the latest mapping technology and provide all Yolo County election results as soon as they are available in a format that is easy to digest and understand.”

In January 2020, Yolo County was one of six jurisdictions nationally to be recognized by the U.S. Elections Assistance Commission for Outstanding Innovation in Election Administration. The U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s Annual “Clearie” Award recognized Yolo County for utilizing (GIS) Geographic Information System to develop a new poll worker app and streamline election night reporting while also improving voter participation.

The election results are not final until after the canvassing process is completed by the Yolo County Elections Office. The California Elections Code requires election officials to complete the official canvass no later than the 30th day after the election and submit a certified statement of the final results of the election to the Secretary of State, though the Elections Office may conclude the canvass period earlier. After the election has been certified, official results will be available on the Yolo County Elections website.
