Every election there are “categories” of ballots that will be counted
and have the potential to be counted as part of the 8th day processing
after the election. For instance,
military and overseas mail ballots and signature discrepancy cures can be
received up until the 8th day after the election and still be counted. Because
of the July 4 holiday, 8th day processing will actually occur on July 5, the
9th day after the election.

In this webinar, Boulder County Clerk & Recorder Hillary Hall will review
all the types of categories (buckets, if you will) of ballots that the
candidates should expect to be remaining the day after the election. This
webinar is meant to help bring clarity in terms of how the final ballots are
processed and what is and what may be outstanding the day after the election. This
information is especially important if a contest is close.

Additionally, the webinar will cover the election night results process,
watcher information, recount scenarios, and Colorado’s election audit (risk
limiting audit).
