Alameda County Registrar of Voters Tim Dupuis is estimating that more than 100,000 ballots still need to be counted from Tuesday’s General Election and that the County’s elections staff is working diligently to complete the ballot counting process.

Votes still to be counted in Alameda County include approximately 18,000 ballots cast through early voting; about 82,500 vote-by-mail ballots that were received by the Registrar’s office on Tuesday; and about 24,000 provisional ballots submitted at the polling places on Election Day.  

As of the end of Tuesday night’s vote counting effort, Alameda County had counted ballots submitted by 229,228 voters. 

The vote count is set to resume on Thursday morning and Dupuis says the next update of Alameda County’s election results is planned for 5 p.m. Thursday. 

Vote counting is likely to stretch through the weekend and into next week, Dupuis said. Under State law, Alameda County has until December 2 to certify its election results.
