“The state won’t pick it up on their site, though, until later this evening,” said Clerk-Recorder Aubrey Rowlatt. “We will only be posting the update to the local races on our website. We are directing people to the state’s website for statewide races.”

Today, 5 p.m., is the deadline to cure mail ballots. Rowlatt said the clerk’s office has just over 100 left to cure, plus approximately 180 provisional ballots they cannot count until Tuesday.

“The deadline to cure signature cures on mail ballots and provisional ballots (proof of residency) is today at 5 p.m.,” she said. “I cannot count them until (Tuesday) by law.”

She said approximately 30 to 40 ballots came in Saturday. The remaining ballots could affect what is a close race for Rowlatt’s replacement in the clerk-recorder’s office. According to Monday’s update, William Scott Hoen leads Stacie Wilke-McCulloch by 188 votes: 10,790 versus 10,602.

“Again, no results are final until the canvass on Nov. 18,” Rowlatt said, referring to the special Board of Supervisors meeting Friday to canvass the vote.

Rowlatt said even with the close clerk-recorder’s race, she has “not heard anything about a recount at this time.”
