It's now 9:30pm and County Clerk Stern Doll still doesn't have any numbers posted. What the heck???????????


And why does the printout say 7:51 pm?


What printout?

Reporter Starla Pointer

The results being reported on the clerk's office website are from the first run of ballots, which took place just before 8 p.m. Those ballots had been turned in well before the polls closed and processed.
At 8 p.m., ballots were picked up from drop boxes in Lafayette and other cities, then brought to the clerk's office in McMinnville, where they had to be checked in preparation for running through the counting machines. That's why there are only partial or no results for some races.
The clerk says the next ballot tally will be released about 11:30 p.m. I hope it's earlier!


When I go to the clerks website and click on current elections all I get is a cover page that says it will be updated after 8pm and when I click on the link at the top of this page it says the same thing.
