lic opinion related to elections.

The clerk said the county’s election system was protected against foreign interference. She said that City/County IT continually monitors the county’s election computers for security.

Trueblood said election workers are ready to count a large number of absentee ballots submitted by people taking precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

She said the absentee ballots will take more work to count, but that final unofficial tallies should be reported by sometime early Wednesday, Nov. 4.

“It all depends on the absentee vote turn out, but I am fairly confident we will have unofficial results reported by early morning,” she said.

All absentee ballots must be delivered to polling stations by 8 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.

Trueblood said the U.S. Supreme Court failed to take a Wisconsin case where a judge said absentee ballots could be counted six days after Election Day. She said she is unaware of any current pending court case that would disrupt a normal general election.

“Fingers crossed, I think everything will work smoothly,” she said.
