Shasta County Elections Office Releases Vote Updates: ‘No on Kevin Crye Recall’ Ahead 39 Votes

The Shasta County Registrar of Voters office released another county elections vote count update late this afternoon.

There remains a Friday. March 15 update that should give a clearer idea of the most likely ultimate winners and losers.

The primary focus for many Shasta County voters are races in all Shasta County Supervisor districts except District 5. See screen grabs below of those key races from the Shasta County Elections website.

Here is the ROV office’s March 12 statement:

“Joanna Francescut, Assistant Shasta County Clerk and Registrar of Voters wishes to inform the public and the media the results were updated at 4:30pm on our website. We will release the next update on Friday March 15th.

We are working quickly to complete the canvass for this election. California counties have up to 28 days to complete the official canvass of a federal election and 30 days for statewide and local elections. There are many steps that must be completed, but in its essence, the purpose of the canvass accomplishes these critical tasks:

· Ensuring eligible ballot is counted

· Ensuring that voters only voted once

· Ensuring proper procedures were followed on Election Day

· Ensuring the vote tabulation system is properly counting ballots

Voters who receive signature verification letter requesting additional information must cure their ballot by March 21st. Instructions on how to respond to the request are included in the signature verification letter.

Below is a report on the estimated count of unprocessed ballots that we have in our office. It is just that, an estimate. We are still processing these ballots, including verifying the signature and the eligibility of the voter. There may be ballots added to this count or removed as necessary. Today was the last day to receive valid post marked ballots from the post office.”

March 12, 2024 Third Estimated Unprocessed Ballot Report

Vote By Mail: 8594
Provisional: 176
CVR Provisional:120
Other: *278
*(Includes unprocessed ballots that are damaged, need to be remade, or require further review
Total Unprocessed: 9171

“We have been alerted that there may be some confusion about language on our website that states “100% of precincts reporting.” This refers specifically to ballots cast at the polling place on Election Day only. It allows voters and the public generally to track the progress and return of precinct ballots on election night. As stated above, there are many ballots left to add into the count in the coming weeks.
