Work Far From Over After Gainesville Election
The polls have long since closed, but the work on the March 16 election in Gainesville is far from over.
On Friday morning, the Supervisor of Elections office canvased the final ballots and made the vote official.
After last Tuesday's election, the board still has to count provisional ballots. They are usually ballots cast by someone, who forgot to bring their ID or not in the election system when they showed up at the polls.
Residents have two days after the election to prove they are a valid voter after casting a provisional ballot.
"It gives us that two days to go back in and review all the records and try to ascertain whether they are an eligible voter or not," Pam Carpenter said. "It also gives them two days to bring in evidence to try to prove they are eligible."
Additionally, equipment used during the election will be randomly audited to ensure accuracy.
