Election Night Reporting in Yolo County

Post Date:06/04/2018 10:02 AM

Press Release

(Woodland, CA) – Initial 2018 Primary Election results will be available across multiple formats on election night. After 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday June 5th, the Yolo County Election website www.yoloelections.org will begin displaying tabulated 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 Election office is debuting a new interactive election night reporting map to display results. The maps are a collaboration between the Yolo County Election Office and the Yolo County Information Technology Department and utilizes Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping technology through ESRI, a world leader in mapping and spatial analytics software. These initial maps will display Yolo County and select local contests in an interactive format. The visual map results will be available by precinct and will display the current leader in each precinct. “We are pleased to incorporate the latest mapping technology and provide election results as soon as they are available in a format that is easy to digest and understand. This pilot program will make way for a more robust model in the November 2018 General Election”, says Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Clerk /Recorder/Assessor and Registrar of Voters.

The election results are not final until after the canvassing process is completed by the Yolo County Election Office. The California Elections Code requires election officials to complete the official canvass no later than the 28th day after the election and submit a certified statement of the 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 Election website.
