The most recent results of the 2022 General Election can be found on the County’s ROV website at Unofficial Election Results.

This report is updated at 5 p.m. each weekday until the election is certified by the Registrar of Voters. After the Unofficial Election Results are posted each weekday, the What’s Left to Process report is updated as well.

As of 5 p.m., Monday, November 14, about 821,000 ballots have been counted and about 176,000 vote-by-mail and provisional ballots are left to process.

Note: Our Unofficial Election Results only includes ballots cast in Orange County. The overall results of statewide contests or for districts that cross county lines can be viewed on the Secretary of State's website.

Counting Every Eligible Ballot Accurately
Counting Every Eligible Ballot Accurately

During the Official Election Canvass, the Registrar of Voters finishes processing all vote-by-mail ballots and provisional ballots. We also conduct several tests and audits to confirm the accuracy of the election results.

The canvass must be completed no later than Thursday, December 8.

Some key canvass activities are described later in this newsletter. For the latest information on daily activities, go to the Orange County Election Observation page.

Signature Issue Cure Process
Signature Issue Cure Process

A signature issue with a vote-by-mail ballot can be cured by the voter up until two days before the Registrar of Voters certifies the results of this election.

A curable issue could either be the voter forgot to sign the ballot return envelope or that three Registrar of Voters’ staff members found the voter’s signature on the envelope significantly differed from all signatures in the voter’s registration file.

In either case, the Registrar of Voters will notify affected voters by mail and provide them a statement to sign and return to confirm that they voted.

We recommend these voters submit their statements as soon as possible or by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, to meet the deadline.

Post-Election Audits
Post-Election Audits

Several tests and audits to confirm the accuracy of the ballot scanners and election results tabulated by the County’s voting system are expected to begin by next week.

The votes on a portion of the paper ballots cast in this election will be randomly selected and hand-counted to audit the accuracy of the vote tally. Last week, the Registrar of Voters randomly selected at least one percent of the precincts in the county from which to hand count ballots. We also randomly selected a 20-digit seed number that will be entered into State-approved software to select ballots for a Risk Limiting Audit. In combination, the two hand-counting audits will determine whether the results of every contest on the ballot are correct.

We will also test the continued accuracy of all of the ballot scanners used in this election. Test ballots marked with a pre-determined pattern and results will be run through the scanners to ensure they still count votes accurately. This same test was conducted on the ballot scanners before they were put into use for this election.

Tracking Your Provisional Ballot
Tracking Your Provisional Ballot

Did you cast a provisional ballot during the 2022 General Election? We are still processing about 7,200 provisional ballots. You may check whether your provisional ballot was counted by visiting the Registrar of Voters website: Provisional Lookup | OC Vote and entering the code on your provisional ballot receipt.

If your ballot has not been processed yet, it will be before we certify the election results. Check back again later.
