“Pre-processing primarily means checking in every poll, then working them via a scanner that reads the ballots in order that they’re able to be counted as quickly because the polls shut on Election Day,” the report added.

“The absentee ballots, as they arrive in are verified and checked in, after which they’re opened, and the ballots are eliminated and unfolded. After which they’re run via the scanners,” stated Scott Konopasek, Fairfax County’s Common Registrar and Director of Elections. “It has to begin early to ensure that us to have the ability to accommodate the quantity of ballots we count on to have.”
