The City of Santa Barbara has contracted with the Los Angeles County Elections office to provide certain election services. These services include the tally and canvas of returned ballots. Thus, the ballot tally will occur in Norwalk, California at the Los Angeles County offices.

Finally, there will be an additional tally the following week covering ballots picked up at the Post Office on Thursday, November 7, and Friday, November 8, but postmarked by Election Day, and including those returned ballots received with missing signatures where the signature is completed by Wednesday, November 13.
