    Every vote continues to count...


    eLECTION 2014  

    K watch
    K election gets 360 more votes today

    MONDAY WILL BE FINAL UPDATE 
    ELECTION TO BE CERTIFIED TUESDAY


    Today 360 total votes were added to the Measure K election.  The Measure K election  percentages remained 54.6% for YES  and  45.4%  for the NO side.

    The Yes side received 209 of today's votes (58%) and the NO side received 151 of today's votes (42%). 

    As of today, Measure K YES votes are  191 votes short of 55%.

    As the number of remaining ballots left to count in all of Orange County dwindle down- eventually only damaged ballots, unscanned ballots and "orphan" ballots will remain. The Orange County Registrar of Voters has announced Monday will be the final update of votes.

    The following is an explanation from the Orange County Registrar of Voters what each of these ballots are:

    DAMAGED BALLOTS
    Damaged ballots are paper ballots where the barcode has been compromised in some way, preventing the scanning of the ballot. Examples include a tear, pen marks, foreign material (such as food stains, smudges, etc.), or a fade in the barcode itself. Each of these ballots must be duplicated onto new ballot paper by hand.
    UNSCANNED BALLOTS
    A ballot unscanned is a ballot that did not scan on the first pass. Causes for this include issues in the barcode or a misfeed on a scanner. Each of these ballots must be located among the entire batch of scanned ballots (a needle in a haystack). Once found we must attempt to scan the ballot a second time and if it still will not scan we must duplicate it by hand.
    ORPHAN BALLOTS
    An orphan ballot is a ballot that is returned without the full ballot (for example, a single page of a two page ballot). These ballots are not scanned in the early stages of the ballot scanning - we must wait to see if the voter returns the second page. Following Election Night we identify any orphan ballots and locate them among all of the ballots scanned. The orphan is then scanned into the actual tally.

    Comments:
    Very sad news for OUSD students. There was so much apathy, ignorance and misinformation out there. The No on K people spread outright lies, used scare tactics and sound bites to defeat the bond. They should be ashamed of themselves.
