Election Results Update

Good Evening Neighbors,
I received several questions about tomorrow’s events at tonight’s Civic Association Meeting.
I would like to clarify what will actually be happening at the proceedings tomorrow in Norristown.
The official tabulation starts at 9 a.m. at the machine warehouse where they have been stored since the elections (The “unofficial” results are currently on the website at www.montcopa.org).
The tape from each machine will be compared to the election night report generated in the secure ballot room at the County Seat. Then the absentee ballots and any provisional ballots will be counted. Candidates or watchers appointed by candidates watch the proceedings, as do all the political parties. If the tabulation is unable to be completed tomorrow, it will be suspended until Tuesday, Nov. 12. (Monday is Veterans Day and a county holiday.) Keep in mind that this is for all races and not just the ones that ended in a tie.
If it’s still tied after the count is completed, “lots” (method of deciding the final outcome, i.e.: coin-flip, dice roll) will be cast before the County Election Board at 12:00 PM on Friday, November 22nd.
I’ll be sure to update you as soon as possible after the proceedings.
