County certifies election results

Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship has certified the County’s Nov. 3 General Election results and forwarded final results to the State.

Since Election Day on November 3, elections staff has been adjudicating ballots to determine voter intent, counting votes, documenting votes for one “no candidate filed” race, contacting voters with signature challenges and curing signature challenges so that all votes are counted.

The election had a very high turnout; 85.28 percent of the 150,696 eligible Deschutes County voters returned ballots.

“I want to thank every single one of you who cast a ballot during the 2020 General Election,” said Blankenship. “We saw record early voting this year and heard from many that were first-time voters. It’s always exciting to see residents cast ballots and make their voices heard.”
