For Immediate Release
SAN FRANCISCO, Tuesday, November 22, 2016 – The Department of Elections randomly selected precincts this morning to include in the manual counting of ballot cards associated with the 1% manual tally as required under California Elections Code section 15360(a)(b)(i); this process is among the final steps to canvassing of results of the November 8 election.

The Department of Elections selected, using 3 ten-sided dice, six precincts that represent 1% of the number of precincts in the November 8 election.  Following Californian Elections Code, the Department chose additional precincts that include contests not present among the contests in the initial six precincts. 

For the initial six precincts, all contests will be manually tallied and these manual tallies will be compared to the results from the Department’s voting equipment.  For the additional precincts, the Department will manually tally the contests not listed on the ballot cards of the initial six precincts. 

The Department webcast the random selection of the precincts included in the 1% manual tally and posted a recording of the selection process on sfelections.org/live.

Following is a list of precincts that have been selected to be included in the 1% manual tally.
