Election Results Process

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office will release initial, unofficial results at approximately 7:15 p.m. on Election Night, November 5, 2019. The results will reflect what has been counted through Monday, November 4, 2019.

The next set of results will be released at 7:30 p.m. Those result numbers will cover what has been counted through the majority of Election Day. After that, results will be updated every hour on the half hour (8:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m., etc.) with the last release on Election Night at 11:30 p.m.  When all ballots have been counted the final Unofficial Results will be released.

Results will be released using the Colorado Secretary of State’s platform. The site will be made live starting the morning of Election Day.

Unofficial Results

Results released on Election Night are posted as “unofficial.” This is due to military and overseas ballots that are afforded extra time for delivery after Election Day, and voters with signature or identification issues who are given time to resolve their issue.  Voters in those categories have eight days after the election to resolve their issue or return their ballot.

Official Results

Results are deemed “official” when the bipartisan canvass board validates the results.  The last day for the canvass to be completed is Wednesday, November 27, 2019.
