The statewide recount continues to go smoothly.
G.A.B. staff received many questions today focusing on circumstances where absentee ballots are rejected, and the "drawdown process" by which ballots are removed. There have also been questions about what to do with absentee ballots where there are not signatures on the certification envelope or if there are not initals on ballots. For information on drawdown procedures, consult the Recount Procedures Manual.
All these issues have been resolved by local Boards of Canvassers with the assistance of G.A.B. staff.
Regarding the spreadsheet, staff will be working on Saturday to provide updated numbers as they come in. There will be no updates on Sunday.
