Results on election night following the Vote Centers closing at 7:00 pm are always unofficial. Unofficial results will be, as always, the candidates on the ballot will be reported on election night. Write-in vote TOTALS will be reported, but we will not know who the write-in votes are for on election night.

If the write-in total for County Commissioner down to special districts is GREATER than the highest candidate on the ballot, the Clerk’s Office will be required to count those write-in ballots before the canvassing board meets on Friday. If the write-in total for those same races is LESS than the highest candidate on the ballot, then the candidate on the ballot will be the unofficial winner (made official at the canvass board meeting).

“Write-Candidates for Legislative Offices, State Offices and United States Representative are determined by the State Canvass Board following the County Canvass Board.”

The General Election is scheduled to be certified on Friday, November 11, 2022, at 10:00 am in the County Commissioners’ Chambers at the Fremont County Courthouse in Lander. The public is invited to attend.
