• 59,800+ ballots left to count in Monterey County

    HERE’S WHY WE DON’T HAVE A TOTAL VOTE COUNT YET: Monterey County Elections is in the official election canvass process. The canvass is a 28 day period required by law to conduct a full accounting and tabulation of all ballots cast in the election. The ballots cast include provisional ballots and vote-by-mail ballots delivered on Election Day or received within the three days after the election with a postmark on Election Day.

    In processing vote-by-mail ballots, elections officials must confirm each voter’s registration status, verify each voter’s signature on the vote-by-mail envelope, and ensure each person did not vote elsewhere in the same election before the ballot can be counted. Other ballots that are processed after Election Day include provisional ballots (processed similar to vote-by-mail ballots), and ballots that are damaged or cannot be machine-read and must be remade by elections officials.

    State law requires county elections officials to report their final results to the Secretary of State for presidential electors by December 6, 2016, and for all other contests by December 9, 2016. The Secretary of State will certify the results for presidential electors to the Governor by December 10, 2016, and will certify the results of all state contests by December 16, 2016.

    As of Thurs., November 10, the estimated number of ballots to be processed is over 59,800. The next reports will be posted by close of business day on Wednesday, Nov. 16 and Friday Nov. 18, 2016.

    For election results visit MontereyCountyElections.us or call the Elections Office at (831) 796-1499.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
