Santa Cruz County Elections

June 6, 2006 Gubernatorial Primary

Important Information about Tuesday, June 6, 2006, Election Night Results

Results posted online are NOT FINAL. There are our thousands of absentee ballots that remain to be counted, as well as over 1,000 provisional ballots and hundreds of ballots to be remade.

Our canvass procedures will continue Monday Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until all ballots are reconciled, the audit of the polls completed, and the 1% manual count of the contests concluded before final results will be released. There will be no updates posted until the canvass is complete and all ballots are counted. Final certification should take place by the end of June.

All of our procedures are open to the public, and we invite interested persons to come in any time during our regular business hours. If extended work hours are planned, notice will be posted on the website.

In response to questions regarding the thousands of write-in votes for the Office of County Clerk, a programming error has been identified and corrected. However, new vote totals will not be released until all canvass work is completed and a final count certified.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Santa Cruz County Clerk, Gail Pellerin, directly at 831-454-2419 or
