The Clerk and Recorder’s Office will release the initial batch of results around 7:01 PM-7:05 PM tomorrow evening. The initial batch of results will include all ballots cast and counted from June 2 through June 23. The Clerk and Recorder’s Office plans to update the initial results at approximately 7:30 PM and every hour thereafter (on or about the half hour, i.e. 7:30, 8:30, 9:30 PM, etc.) throughout the evening until all results have been tabulated. The subsequent final unofficial results will likely take hours to tabulate as each Voter Service and Polling Center and ballot drop-off location will need to be closed out, the ballots delivered to the Citizens Service Center, and the ballots processed and counted. Some ballot drop-off locations are as far away as Calhan and Ellicott to the east.
Results will be released on the Clerk and Recorder’s website car.elpaso.com, under the “2014 Primary Election Unofficial Results” tab that will be towards the top of the page. The results of the contested primaries will be posted on the top of the results page. Results for contested races also will be posted on Twitter at @ClerkEPC and Facebook.
