Washoe County Board of County Commissioners to certify results of 2020 General Election

by | Nov 13, 2020

Washoe County Registrar of Voters Deanna Spikula will present the Canvass of the Vote at a special meeting of the Board of County Commissioners at 10 a.m., Monday, November 16.
The presentation and approval of the canvass is the final step in the county’s election process. After the Board approves, the official results will be sent to the Nevada Secretary of State to be certified with other county results in Nevada.
The 2020 General Election was highlighted by record-breaking voter turnout and the largest volume of mail-in ballots in a Washoe County election to date.
“We knew this would be an election for the record books, and we were well prepared,” Spikula said. “We recruited more poll workers than needed, we utilized a new state-of-the-art ballot sorting machine, and we managed to keep on top of the influx of ballots so that when Election Day arrived, we were ready.”
Washoe County offered a daily public livestream on YouTube from the election office that received national media attention and thousands of viewers each day, at one point surpassing 15,000 viewers. The Registrar of Voters Office also posted daily updates of unofficial results every day after the election. The livestream and real-time results dashboard provided open and transparent access to the election process.
