These unofficial election results are reported directly to the Office of the Secretary of State by county auditors.
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 Tuesday, August 21, 2012, the State Canvassing Board will meet to canvass the votes cast for candidates at the 2012 State Primary.
If a recount occurs, a Recount Official will conduct the recount. The Canvassing Board will then reconvene to receive the report of the Recount Official, and to resolve any challenged ballots. The final candidate vote totals from the recount may differ from the vote originally counted at the Canvassing Board. If so, the recounted totals, as approved by the Canvassing Board, become the official election result.
