During a County Canvass, local administrators declare elected the individuals having received the highest number of votes cast for each county-certified office and proclaim the adoption or rejection of county ballot issues.
Once a canvas is complete, Election Administrators send the results to the Secretary of State. On November 30th, the State Canvass Board is expected to declare the winners of each race.
After that is done, the Secretary of State certifies the election results.
