Livermore Indivisible will host speaker Tim Dupuis, Alameda County Registrar of Voters Director, at the Livermore Civic Center Library Community Room on Thursday, May 16, from 6:30-8:30 PM. With the primaries and 2020 election nearing, Dupuis will address any confusion community members may have about the election process.
He will talk about when mail-in ballots are counted and noted by the registrar as being received; whether a ballot noted as received indicates a signature has been verified; when election day votes are counted and signatures verified; the process of counting provisional ballots; why ballots may be counted two weeks after an election; changes in voting planned for 2020 and how they impact the vote counting process; and whether Alameda County may adopt the Voter's Choice Act.
As both the Registrar of Voters and the Chief Information Officer for Alameda County, Dupuis is responsible for the staffing and recruitment of approximately 6,000 poll workers on election day. He also oversees the maintenance of voter records for over 840,000 registered voters, with over 540,000 of those voters voting by mail. Dupuis oversees all aspects of each election for as many as 58 jurisdictions within Alameda County. He also certifies each election.
