Every election there are "categories" of ballots that will be counted and have the potential to be counted at the end of the eighth day after the election. For instance, military and overseas mail ballots can be received up until the eighth day after the election and still be counted.

In the webinar, Clerk Hall will review the types of categories (buckets, if you will) of ballots that the candidates, parties, and cities 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).
