The Navajo Election Administration has 10 days after an election to hand count any eligible challenged votes to include in the election results.

Eligible means a vote is an active registered voter and hand-counted absentee ballots received on or before 7 p.m. on Election Day, explained Rosita Kelly, executive director for the election administration.

All absentee ballots received the Friday before an election – in this case, Nov. 8, 2022 – are included in the machine count. All other absentee ballots received by 7 p.m. on Election Day is hand counted, said Kelly.

The Navajo Board of Election Supervisors will certify those results at its regular meeting after 10 days of an election – if there are no grievances or requests for recounts, among others.

Kelly said certification of election results gets delayed if grievances are filed or if there are requests for recounts specific to a candidate’s districts/areas of representation. Nov. 18 is the deadline to request a recount or file a grievance.
