Mark Church, San Mateo County chief elections officer, officially certified Monday the election results for the Nov. 5 election.
The election saw a turnout of 25.4 percent of registered voters, Church said. A closer look at the turnout numbers showed that 69,775 of the 91,335 ballots were vote by mail voters, 402 were early voters and 21,158 ballots were voted at the polls, he added.
The chief elections officer officially certifies the results once the canvass is completed in the 28 days following an election. During the canvass, the vote by mail ballots and the paper and electronic ballots cast at the Elections Office are added to the semi-official vote totals. A publicly conducted 1 percent manual tally of the votes confirmed the accuracy of the election, according to Church’s office.
