California Elections Code Sections 15150-15152 require elections officials to report initial results immediately after the close of polls on Election Night, and to continue reporting results every 2 hours until all voting locations report in.
As is routine for every election, Nevada County will tabulate the Unofficial Results on Election Night and will begin releasing those results shortly after the close of polls at 8 p.m. and after the County reports these results to the California Secretary of State. Each report will be posted to this page and will include cumulative results, results by consolidated precinct, and detailed vote totals. We will reach out when Election Night updates are available. Reasonable accommodations can be made for reporters who appear in person who would like printed copies of election results.
Please note that, due to COVID-19 protocols, access to our office is limited. Our staff will initiate similar protocols as we did during the November 2020 election. All media and observers are required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.
The canvass of the election will begin on Thursday, September 16, 2021. The details of the election canvass are provided for in our Notice of Election. As is usually the case, the Registrar of Voters will provide periodic updates to the County election results every 2-3 days. We will have more specifics once the elections canvass begins.
Local media outlets have been notified of this process. If your media organization, political organization, or campaign would like to be included on the notification list, or if you have any specific questions about Election Night Reporting for our team, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
