    Dee Andrews: By The Numbers

    (May 3, 2007) -- Election returns processed to date in the 6th district City Council race show Dee Andrews' lead results from absentee ("vote by mail") ballots that dwarfed his rivals.

    Below are salient City Clerk figures as of 2:49 a.m. May 2 (the most recent count to date before provisional and additional absentee ballots are counted)

    Dee Andrews555 votes...of which 327 were by absentee ballot
    Al Austin506 votes...of which 135 were by absentee ballot
    Ahmed Saafir357 votes...of which 150 were by absentee ballot
    Ed Acevedo341 voters...of which 95 were by absentee ballot

    All modern campaigns urge their likely supporters to request an absentee ballot. Some campaigns provide presumed likely voters with an absentee ballot request form, which the voter fills out and the campaign can deliver to the City Clerk's office.

    The City Clerk's office electronically forwards the voter's request to an outside venor (a certified ballot printing firm) which sends the absentee ballot to the voter. The voter marks his/her absentee ballot and returns the ballot to the City Clerk by mail (must be received on or before election day) or at a polling place (on election day).

    In the 6th district race, the following ballots still remain to be counted:

  • 100 absentee ballots dropped off at polling places on election day May 1
  • Some quantum of absentee ballots received by mail by the City Clerk on election day May 1 (currently being sorted out of citywide ballots received May 1; we'll add number when we learn it)
  • 221 provisional ballots cast at polling places on May 1

    The City Clerk's office says absentee ballots received by mail and at polling places on May 1 need to be processed, which involves hand sorting absentee return envelopes by precinct, verifying signatures and checking addresses before opening the return envelop and removing a voted ballot for scanning, resolution and tally.

    The Clerk's office says it expects to finish processing absentees by May 7 or 8...and May 9th is the earliest day (and May 10th is the more likely day) on which it will open, sort and scan absentee ballots...producing a final tallied result in the 6th district race.

    Each LB City Council districts has roughly 50,000 residents. On election day, the City Clerk's office says the 6th Council district had 16,527 registered voters. In the May 1 special election, 2,110 ballots were cast in the 6th Council district...amounting to a roughly 12.7% voter turnout.
