● The “RaceTracker” web application allows the user to customize the report to: display all or only selected races; see what percentage of the vote has been reported; know which precincts have reported and determine both percentages and raw vote totals from Vote by Mail ballots, early voting, and/or Election Day precinct voting.
● Printable PDF format reports are available if a paper record of the results at each reporting interval is desired.
● HTML format reports which are designed for fast, convenient, at a glance reviewing and scrolling of results.
In addition, real-time monitoring of the movement of voted precinct ballots from each polling place to the Registration & Elections Division Tally Room will also be possible with the website’s “Precinct Tracker” tool.
Live video coverage of the Tally Room operations will also be available on www.shapethefuture.org.
