Voter turnout running behind 2018 in Adams County

Posted

Voting turnout in Adams County's general election was running behind previous years Nov. 8 as the final countdown got underway.

Adams County Clerk Encourages Voters to Return Ballots by 7 p.m.

The Adams County Clerk's office reported that 104,285 had submitted their ballots as of the close of business Nov. 7, the final day before the final votes would be tallied. That's about 30% of registered Adams County voters and roughly 14% lower than the mid-term elections in 2018.

“Exercising your right to vote is not only key to the future of our county and state but also fundamental to American democracy,” said Josh Zygielbaum, Adams County Clerk & Recorder. “Every election gives Adams County voters, from every party, an opportunity to have their voices heard on measures and candidates that will affect their community for years to come.”

Ballots for the 2022 General Election must be returned by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 8, to any 24-hour drop box or Voter Service and Polling Center  in the county.  The county has a list of ballot boxes and service center locations online, at https://www.adamsvotes.com/where-do-i-go-2/

Voters can also vote in person at any voter service center.

Unofficial results will be available on AdamsVotes.com shortly after 7 p.m. on Election Day. Results will not be official until the Canvass Board convenes to certify the election, tentatively scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30. Learn more about the Canvass Board and their role in Logic and Accuracy Testing, the Risk-Limiting Audit, and certification of the election in this video.
