Clerk's office goes real time with election results

Election > Staff will continue to work on the system before the general election.

The Los Alamos County Clerk’s office unveiled a new system for reporting election results in Tuesday’s primary elections.
 Instead of candidates and the press jockeying to read a grocery tape printout, numbers were displayed on two screens in the Los Alamos County chambers and on the county clerk’s website.
As results came in from the county’s three Vote Centers, they were automatically added to earlier results. In the past, totals from each successive tape would have to be added manually.
Despite a few glitches, those following election results in council chambers were pleased with what they saw.
“There was a big crowd tonight, and we went around and asked folks what they thought, and a lot of them commented they thought it was a good process,” county clerk Sharon Stover said.
Inspired by a system developed by Doña Ana County, the county opted to build its own reporting system rather than purchase expensive election software. Communications Specialist II Leslie Buckland, Senior Deputy Clerk Adrianna Ortiz and IM Service Desk Supervisor Leah Frazier developed the mechanics for the program.
The display went into operation shortly after the polls closed, showing results from absentee ballots and early voting. New totals were displayed as each Vote Center reported in.
