Election Results Updated

The semi-official election results were updated again Wednesday afternoon. Check the results at http://www.shapethefuture.org - also be sure to check out "Race Tracker" which allows you to look at the results for specific races rather than having to pour over the entire results report.

On Friday, November 14th, the semi-official results will be updated at 4:30 pm - and again on November 18th.

You might be wondering, "why does it take so long to count the votes?" Well, it is not the counting of the votes that takes the time but the processing and signature checking of the vote by mail requests to ensure that the people casting the ballots are in fact registered voters and did not vote at the polls. Also, there are provisional ballots to research - thousands for an election of this size.
