Voting re-count matches up for November 2018 election in Erie County

Election Day is long over, but Erie County officials are double-checking their numbers.

The Erie County Elections Board routinely holds an official vote count the Friday after the election.  It's their way of confirming there were no mistakes in the original count.  The Clerk of Elections, Doug Smith, tells us this year, the secondary count matched up with the unofficial count.

"On Election Night, the results are copied off a particular media, and we use those totals to come up with an unofficial number. Today we compare that media with the memory flash card that's in each voting machine."

The final count is a statutory requirement to make sure the Board of Elections did everything on election night. To find out more, you can visit https://www.eriecountypa.gov/election/
