LINCOLN – Members of the Nebraska State Board of Canvassers will convene in Hearing Room 1524 at the State Capitol at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, June 8. The purpose of the meeting is to certify results of the May 12 statewide primary election.
The board consists of all state constitutional officers, except the Lt. Governor. Governor Ricketts will serve as chairman. The meeting is open to the public.
Once county canvassing boards have met and certified their results, local election officials will submit the certified results from local, state, and federal races to the Secretary of State’s office. Results will be compiled and presented to the State Board of Canvassers for final approval. Only results for offices filed through the Secretary of State are included in that report.
At this point, no recounts are anticipated in any statewide races. However, if any final certified results of a race fall within the parameters of an automatic recount, the board will order that a recount be carried out starting at 12:30 p.m. on June 15.
Deputy Secretary of State for Elections, Wayne Bena, will provide a briefing to the board about the primary election and conduct the review of the state canvassing report. A copy of the June 8 agenda is available online at https:// sos.nebraska.gov/elections/
