In a special meeting Tuesday, November 10, Sierra County Commissioners gathered to examine and affirm final tallies from the county’s November 3 General Election.
Sierra County Clerk Shelly Trujillo first briefed members about a statement from Dominion Voting Systems regarding several concerns about electronic tabulation processes expressed up to and through the election. After affirming a total of 5,978 votes were cast in Sierra County, Trujillo then led commissioners through a review of precinct results and addressed less than a handful of ballots that for various reasons were ultimately discounted.
Once satisfied with the results and information as provided, commission members joined in unanimous support of a motion to formally approve the November 3 General Election results. The county’s final tabulations will now be forwarded to election authorities with the Secretary of State’s office.
