Nov. 3 Election Results Now Certified

Officials with the Marin County Elections Department on Thursday moved to certify the final results of the Nov. 3 election — an election department officials called one of the most challenging in recent history.

Despite the threat of COVID-19 and Public Safety Power Shutoffs, election officials reported 90 percent voter turnout, the second highest voter turnout in the county’s documented history, coming in second to the 2008 general election that had 91 percent voter turnout.

“This one will definitely live in our collective memory for a very long time,” Registrar of Voters Lynda Roberts said in a statement.

According to Roberts, of the 158,736 voters countywide, 92 percent voted by mail, while 8 percent voted at polling places and 0.4 percent submitted provisional votes.

Also, voters between the ages of 18 and 24 made up the majority of voters who registered to vote and voted within 14 days of the election, according to the final election results.

A canvass, of final tally of the results, will be presented to the Marin County Board of Supervisors for approval on Dec. 15, elections department officials said.
