2015 Coordinated Election Official Canvass Complete
No Automatic Recount Triggered in Manitou Springs
[Colorado Springs, Colo. – November 16, 2015] The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office has completed the official canvass of the 2015 Coordinated Election and has posted final official results online. The canvass – completed four days ahead of the November 20 deadline – marks the official end of the 2015 Coordinated Election. In addition to the canvass, the Clerk’s Office also completed a post-election audit. El Paso County’s election equipment passed the audit with 100% accuracy.
With the final results tabulated, no ballot issue or candidate race met the threshold set in Colorado law to trigger an automatic recount.
“We are very proud to have completed another successful election here in El Paso County,” Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman said. “With our emphasis on better processes and efficiency, we tabulated and released results faster than ever before all while maintaining accuracy and security. The voters that participated in the 2015 Coordinated Election can be confident that their voice was heard in our democratic process. I’d like to thank all of our elections staff and judges who worked hard to make this year’s election a resounding success.”
Final official results include additional ballots from military and overseas voters, and ballots that were counted after ID, signature, or other issues were properly resolved. Final official results are approved by a bipartisan canvass board.
