Clerk reviews digital election reporting system

-A A +A

County > Feedback from primary night trial run is mostly positive

By Arin McKenna

It looks as though the mad frenzy of candidates and reporters scrambling to read election results off grocery tapes on election night is a thing of the past.
During the June 3 primary election, Los Alamos County tested a method of reporting results electronically. The feedback received so far has been positive, and county staff is now reviewing what worked, what did not and how the system can be improved.
“The idea was, how can we bring this process into a more modern, digital, easy-access for all demographics that is updated regularly,” said Visual Information Specialist Leslie Bucklin. “Because we’re not Albuquerque, and we don’t have four news channels to get us all the results. So for us, it was how can we provide the same kind of service that a Channel 4 or Channel 7 would without having them?”
County Clerk Sharon Stover instigated the change.
