Election Results Become Official on August 27

The state elections office reminds voters that the results for Tuesday's Primary Election will be released soon after the polls close, but the election does not become official until later in the month.

Peggy Nighswonger is the state’s election director. She said the unofficial summaries of statewide Primary Election results will be posted online as they become available Tuesday.

She said the results from counties become official only after the county canvassing boards meet by Friday. Statewide results are official, she said, when the state canvassing board meets for certification on Aug. 27.
