MORRIS COUNTY, NJ - There have been delays in the reporting of election results, said Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi. In a statement on Facebook, Grossi sought to explain the delays.
"Many residents and interested parties are under the false impression that the Morris County Clerk's Office is responsible for counting paper ballots and that complete results would be posted on the County Clerk's online Election Night Reporting System on Nov. 3."
"Both presumptions are incorrect," she said. "The acceptance, verification and counting of election results are under the sole jurisdiction of the County Board of Elections, which is a separate and independent agency from the County Clerk's Office."
The results will then be provided to the County Clerk's Office from the Board of Elections.
Grossi stated that the results posted on Election Night were not complete. The results will happen over a longer period of time, she said. The county clerk's office will post the election results on an ongoing basis as they are provided by the Board of Elections.
The County Clerk's website stated that official final results may not be available until Nov. 20.
