  • Campaigning: It is unlawful to campaign for any candidate within 150 feet of any entrance to a polling place, unless on private property.
  • Loitering: The polling places should be clear 30 feet from every entrance of all people except election officials, voters waiting to vote or authorized poll watchers.

  • Our office will not announce unofficial election results. As always, we will only announce and post certified election results submitted to our office by the counties.
  • Election Commissioners have ten (10) calendar days from Election Day to file certified results with our office.
  • All certified election results from the 2023 Election Cycle will be available at
  • Counties may announce unofficial totals as the results come in from each precinct on Election Day and as absentee ballots are tallied on Election Night. While these results are generally reliable, it is important to remember any results reported on the night of the election are not considered official, certified election results.
