What happens after Election Day?

Election Day has come and gone, but what happens next? The San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters is posting regular updates on the Election Results webpage until all eligible ballots have been counted.

Some ballots are still being processed, including mail ballots received on election day, mail ballots postmarked on election day but received within seven days, provisional ballots, and mail ballots placed on hold. A mail ballot may be on hold due to signature verification issues, in which case the voter is notified and given a chance to resolve it. Once the signature verification issue is resolved, the envelope can be opened, and the ballot counted.

Provisional ballots, given to voters whose eligibility to vote is uncertain, are held until the voter’s eligibility status is confirmed. The provisional ballot is counted once determined that the voter was eligible on or before Election Day.

The Registrar of Voters will certify the election no later than December 8.
