The final results certification process for the 2021 Primary Election is officially under way.

Uniontown, PA - The Fayette County Election Bureau has begun the final certification process for the 2021 Primary Election results. 

 

All votes have been tallied, and the Fayette County Board of Commissioners completed the first signing of the certification process Tuesday morning.

 

Fayette County Election Bureau Director Larry Blosser thanked the public for their patience and understanding while his office worked through the arduous tabulation process.

 

“This process has been daunting at times with everything that occurred. The staff has really stepped up to the plate, and we delivered an accurate count of our election,” Blosser said. “I’m exhilarated now that this is almost over.”

 

Tuesday’s signing marks the official start of the five-business-day challenge period, which will end at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 15.

 

If no challenges are filed through the Fayette County courts by Tuesday’s deadline, the commissioners may complete the second signing of the certification process and make all election results official.

 

On Monday, the commissioners did a partial certification of the results for only the state-level candidates and four ballot questions, in compliance with the state certification deadline. Tuesday’s signing kicks off certification of all contests for the entire election.

 

All state legislators and both the Democratic and Republican party chairs have been notified that the certification process is under way.

 

The unofficial results with complete vote tallies have been updated on the Fayette County Election Bureau page of the county website, www.FayetteCountyPA.org

 

Pending no challenges, the official results will be available on the site following close of business June 15.

 

For more information, call the Fayette County Election Bureau at 724-430-1289.
