Counting of votes in county elections

The vote count in county elections is mainly conducted in the same way as in municipal elections.

The central municipal election board of each municipality is responsible for counting advance votes and for recounting election day votes.

Once the recount has been completed, each central municipal election board informs the county election board of the number of votes received by each candidate, political party, electoral alliance and joint list in the municipality and the number of invalid ballots. After receiving this information from all municipalities in the wellbeing services county, the county election board confirms the results of the county elections in the wellbeing services county on the third day following election day.
