Macomb County elections result Web site offers email and text updates,
Macomb County Clerk / Register of Deeds Carmella Sabaugh today announced her “personalized election results” Website will be enhanced tomorrow night after the polls close at 8 p.m. The county’s election results Website will have a “My ballot” section, where voters can see election results for the races appearing on their specific ballot, and a “My Watch List” section, where voters can pick specifics races to watch. All election results are unofficial until the Macomb County Board of Canvassers certifies the results within two weeks of the election.
“This is a new way for voters to find out which candidates appearing on their ballot won,” said Sabaugh. “Our new watch list service also makes it easy to monitor specific races throughout the county.”
Tomorrow night you can also choose to receive email and text notification of results for the races you choose when 25%, 50%, and/or 75% of the precincts have reported, or whenever the lead changes, or after the final precinct in a particular race has reported results.
By visiting the county clerk’s Web site http://www.macombcountymi.gov/clerksoffice after 8 p.m. Tuesday and clicking, “Election Results,” you will have the option to view traditional results, listed by office, then by district; or, the option to click, “My Ballot,” or “My Watch List.” You can also see voter turnout and the times local clerks report results.
Sabaugh used Google Maps technology to parse the addresses and has led the county in implementing Google Apps for Government, which is now the county standard.
