These unofficial election results are reported directly to the Office of the Secretary of State by the county auditor of each county.
Sometimes media obtain vote totals directly from the precinct or local election office before those election results are reported to this website. Totals reported by media may differ from the results reported on this site.
On Tuesday, November 25, 2014, the State Canvassing Board will meet to canvass the votes counted for candidates at the election.
If a recount will be held, the Canvassing Board will appoint a Recount Official to conduct the recount. The Canvassing Board will reconvene to receive the report of the Recount Official, and to resolve any challenged ballots. The candidate vote totals from the recount may differ from the vote totals originally presented to the Canvassing Board. If so, the recounted totals, as approved by the Canvassing Board, become the official election result.
