Recorder’s Role In Elections

The County Recorder keeps public records and is in charge of voter registration and early voting. The County Recorder keeps public records so the public can access public records and government information as needed for personal and/or business purposes.

For elections, the County Recorder’s Office is in charge of processing and maintaining voter registration records. Additionally, the County Recorder’s Office administers early voting, including mailing out early ballots and verifying early ballot affidavits. The term is for four years.

What Is PEVL

In order to be included on the Permanent Early Voting List, you must make a written request specifically asking to be on this list.

Once you choose to be included on this list, you will remain on this list until your registration is cancelled, mail sent to you is returned by the Postal Service marked undeliverable, or you request in writing to be removed from the list, whichever occurs first.

How Are Ballots Counted

If a voter is in a precinct tabulation county, the voter or the poll worker would run their voted ballot through the tabulation machine located in the voting location. The machine immediately tabulates the ballot and saves the vote counts to a removable media device located inside the tabulator.

Is My Vote Safe

The counties must adhere to chain of custody protocols. This means that there is a log/paper trail for every single ballot. This includes all early ballots and all ballots at voting locations. Ballots are stored in secure locations and there is a live video feed to the ballot tabulation room for every county. Counties must follow the procedures manual for ensuring the physical security of all ballots. This includes the use of tamper evident seals, identification badges, the presence of two or more staff members of opposite political affiliations, audits, etc.
