Scanning Completed, Results Match Well

The county finished processing its last ballots last Thursday, and the transparency project scan was completed yesterday. Preliminary results for a few races show county vote percentages and independent vote percentages varying by no more than 0.05% (one vote in two thousand). The independent results are still missing about fifteen ballots that could not be processed automatically, and there may be other minor adjustments.

No contests are at issue.

It may be a while before the scans are available. For many precincts, only one or two ballots were cast for some parties. Because these ballots could be used to identify an individual voter, we will need to remove them before releasing the set of scans.
