(Redwood City, CA) Today, Mark Church, the Chief Elections Officer for the County of San Mateo, officially certified the election results for the May 7, 2013 La Honda-Pescadero Unified School District and Portola Valley Elementary School District Special All-Mail Ballot Election.

 

“The election went smoothly. Conducting small, special elections by mail makes sense since they are generally less costly and more efficient,” Church said.

 

“Our communities benefit when citizens take the time to study the issues and cast their votes, as was the case here,” he added.

 

 The Chief Elections Officer officially certifies the results once the Canvass is completed in the 28 days following an election.  During the Canvass, the Vote by Mail ballots and any paper or electronic ballots cast at the Registration and Elections Division are added to the semi-official vote totals.  A publicly conducted one percent manual tally of the votes, an important part of an audit required by the elections code, confirmed the accuracy of the election.

 

The official election results are posted on the Elections website at  www.shapethefuture.org
