Late Election Results: the New Normal

Last Friday morning, the Secretary of State’s Office reported that there were still at least 1.7 million uncounted ballots in California — ten days after the election. The Alameda County Registrar of Voters Office, which was much more efficient at counting ballots than most other election offices around the state, didn’t post its final vote tallies until last Thursday night. As a result, several close contests in the county, including Measures B1 and T, were not decided until nine days after the election.

Welcome to the new normal.
