Additional votes for the 2020 General Election will be counted today in Howard County. As part of the “2020 Presidential General Election Canvass Schedule” here is the future canvasing schedule:

  • Thursday November 5, 2020 – Opening/Scanning of Mail-In Ballots – Lake Elkhorn Gymnasium & Board of Elections Office
  • Sunday November 8, 2020 – Opening/Scanning of Mail-In Ballots – Lake Elkhorn Gymnasium & Board of Elections Office
  • Thursday November 12, 2020 @ 9:00 AM – Provisional Canvass & Opening/Scanning of Mail-In Ballots – Lake Elkhorn Gymnasium & Board of Elections Office
  • Friday November 13, 2020 – Opening/Scanning of Mail-In Ballots – Lake Elkhorn Gymnasium & Board of Elections Office

Dates are subject to change at any time due to workload and/or availability of resources. Please monitor this website for up-to-date information on canvassing of ballots in Howard County.

The local race that is critical in the future vote counting schedule is the Howard County Board of Education race in District 4. Here is the current vote count (Last Updated 11/04/2020 10:00:05 PM):

Currently Jen Mallo holds a 1,086 vote lead as of this morning. Mallo won the race with mail in ballots and one would expect that the counting of additional mail in ballots could expand this lead (unless Palmer supporters had a late push in mail in votes).

I will be updating this (and the other local races) when the results from canvasing are released.
