Halfway Through the 1%

We’re halfway through the 1% manual tally, and everything still looks good for completion by close of business on Tuesday.

If you didn’t see our Twitter, the precincts randomly rolled with our 10-sided dice were 1942, 3740, 1504, 2647, 1816, 4648, 4607, 3505, 4409, 5104, 3326, 4010, 3006, 5301, 5611, 3202, 5603, 5001.

These following precincts are undergoing a full manual tally:

1942
3740

1504

2647
1816
4648
4607

This means that every single contest on every single ballot cast in these precincts will be audited during our 1% process.

The remaining precincts were rolled when we found some of the contests throughout the County were not a part of the first seven precincts.  For example, if none of the precincts include fictional Measure A, we would roll the dice again to select and use the numbers to determine what precinct to audit that does contain Measure A.

That probably didn’t make sense!

Here’s what a “dice bin” looks like:

BOARD OF EDUCATION DISTRICT 1
DICE BIN PCT# PCT
Roll 000-332, pick precinct 1 1 1001
Roll 333-665, pick precinct 2 2 1301
Roll 666-998, pick precinct 3 3 1624
Roll 999-999, reroll dice

We make one of these “bins” for every contest, so that we can easily roll and determine the associated precinct.

As in previous elections, Election Observers were able to participate in the rolling of the dice.   They got to actually roll the dice for us as we wrote down the result of the roll.

Check out our photos of the our dice roll!
