Napa County released its first unofficial election night report at 8:01 p.m. with 42,914 ballots counted. 42,180 of the ballots were returned by mail; official drop box or at the election division. 734 ballots were cast in person at one of Napa County’s vote centers. “This first report contains approximately 60 per cent of our projected turnout,” commented Napa County Registrar of Voters John Tuteur, “which is the largest first report in recent memory.” Tuteur attributed the early turnout to voters paying attention to the Vote Safe – Vote Early messages and being concerned about the risk of voting in person during a pandemic. Approximately 2,000 additional in person ballots from the vote centers will be counted Election Night prior to midnight.
The next report will be on Friday November 6, 2020 in the late afternoon. “I hope to have another 8,000 ballots in that Friday count,” Tuteur added. Further counts are scheduled on Monday November 9, 2020, Tuesday November 10, 2020 and Thursday November 12, 2020 at which point Tuteur will have 95% of the vote counted. Napa County should certify the election by November 30, 2020 after following prescribed canvassing procedures and a manual tally of some 2,000 ballots to confirm the machine tally.
