Kern County Clerk Urges Voters To Think Of It As “Election Season”, Machine Broken, Biden Won, Measure “K” on Fumes

ELECTION UPDATE – DAY 10 – 11/18/2022 6:30 p.m.

Ridgecrest, California

Kern County has counted approximately 71% of the ballots RECEIVED to date. With 17,206 ballots counted since Tuesday’s update, that means Kern County is now counting only 5,735 ballots per day. At the current rate, with 38,174 ballots to count, it will take the Elections department another 7 work days to complete counting the ballots in an election where only 21% of the registered voters in Kern County actually voted.

The next update will be Monday, November 21st:

The updated-not-final ballot counts are below. Kevin McCarthy continues to mount an insurmountable lead with a grand total of 60,445 votes in Kern County. It’s estimated he’ll have 75,000 when the ballots are finally counted.

Meanwhile the City of Ridgecrest falls asleep and gives-up on ever knowing who actually won, not that anybody cares, though Ridgecrest does have a higher voter participation rate coming in at 26%.

This is why Kern County Clerk Mary Bedard urges voters as they wait for results from election day to think of it as election season. That season is happening as the election’s office continues to process ballots from the midterm election.

According to the election’s office, recently the ballot sorting machine was down for repairs. However, it is now fixed and working, but with the process it takes and the time it was down, this could make the process of knowing results even longer.
