These unofficial election results are reported directly to the Office of the Secretary of State by the county auditor of each county.
Sometimes media or others obtain vote totals directly from the precinct or local election office before those election results are reported to this website. Totals reported by media or others may differ from the results reported on this site after the polls close.
On Tuesday, November 27, 2012 , the State Canvassing Board will meet to canvass the votes cast for candidates and questions at the State General Election.
If a recount is needed, a Recount Official will be appointed to conduct the recount. The Canvassing Board will then reconvene to receive the report of the Recount Official, and to resolve any challenged ballots. The final candidate vote totals from the recount may differ from the vote originally counted at the Canvassing Board. If so, the recounted totals, as approved by the Canvassing Board, become the official election result.
