On election night, election officials at individual precincts across the Commonwealth complete a paper report, referred to as the Statement of Results, that indicates the total number of votes received by each candidate. In Virginia, this process generally includes printing results from one or more voting machines, copying the information from these tapes onto the report completed at each precinct, adding the appropriate columns, and producing total vote counts for each candidate. Vote totals from these original Statements of Results are then provided to the general registrars who input this information into the Department’s statewide database. This database is used to provide the public with Unofficial Election Results on election night. On occasion, an election official makes an error during this process. Such errors, while not common, are not unforeseeable and one of many reasons why election night results are “unofficial.” These errors, and any other error in results reporting, are typically corrected during the results review process, referred to as the canvass, which begins the day after the election. During this process, the local electoral board meets to “canvass” the results and review each Statement of Results.
