Update from ABC 23 in Bakersfield (emphasis ours)
When asked if there was a possibility that election results could change, Mary Bedard, the Kern County Registrar of Voters, had this to say.
“Oh definitely, we have a very small percentage of the vote count. We don’t know the turnout yet at this point, but the majority of the votes still have not been counted.“
Bedard, who oversees the Kern County elections, says that the count is incomplete despite staying up until almost 3 a.m. the day after the election counting ballots.https://www.turnto23.com/news/election-2022/election-outcomes-are-not-yet-final
“Simply we finished counting the ballots cast at the polls yesterday,” explained Bedard. “We are not done “
