These unofficial election results are reported directly to the Office of the Secretary of State by the Chisago County Auditor's Office.
Sometimes media or others obtain vote totals directly from the precinct or local election office before those election results are reported to this website. Totals reported by media or others may differ from the results reported on this site after the polls close.
On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, the Chisago County Canvassing Board will meet to canvass the votes for candidates in the Special Election for State Representative District 32B. More information on the canvassing process may be found on the Canvassing Boards webpage.
If a recount occurs, the county auditor acts as Recount Official. The County Canvassing Board will then reconvene to receive the report of the Recount Official, and to resolve any remaining disputes about counting ballots for a candidate. The final vote total from the recount may be different than the vote originally counted at the Canvassing Board. If so, the recounted total, as approved by the Canvassing Board, becomes the official election result.
More information about recounts may be found on the Recounts webpage.
