Today, November 5th starting at 1:00 pm the Fremont County Canvass Board convened at the Courthouse to certify the local results for the 2020 General Election.
“This process makes the unofficial votes official,” said Fremont County Clerk Julie Freese.
Certifying the results included local Democratic Party representative Mary Haper and local Republican Party representative Helen Higby.
To certify the results, the local Canvass Board goes through each seat – County Commission and below – on the ballot and declares the winner.
County 10 reported on November 4th that a new voter turnout record had been set at this General Election with a total of 18,234 voters.
There were two “material errors” reported during the canvassing today. They happened at the Arapahoe and Dubois vote centers. This means a voter was counted at the center but decided to not put their ballot in the machine, according to Freese. There was also a blank ballot submitted at a center.
Freese said, “Did it change the outcome with any of our races? No, it did not. This happens from time to time.”
