Ballot Count Reconciliation for ??/??/??

Count the ballots in each pack when it is opened. Open a pack only when ballots from it are required. The "100" packs, which are put together by weight, often do not contain exactly 100 ballots. That then makes filling out the BOE "Reconciliation Form" very difficult at the end of the day if the starting counts are unknown. Record the true starting counts in the "Counts for "100" Packs" column of the following worksheet immediately when each pack is opened and counted.

At the end of the day, complete the worksheet by making column entries for each ballot style in each box as follows:

Delivered:
Record the sum of the ballots that were in the opened packs for that style from that box (i.e., the total of the "Counts for "100" Packs" entries you logged) plus the ballots in the unopened packs (assuming "100 per pack") for that style from that box.
Left at End:
Record the sum of the ballots remaining from the opened packs for that style from that box plus the ballots in the unopened packs (assuming "100 per pack") for that style from that box.
Used:
Record the difference between "Delivered" and "Left at End". This is the number of ballots actually given out.

Calculate the total for each column. Verify that the "Used" total does equal the difference between the "Delivered" and "Left at End" totals.

Record the number of ballots used for each of Emergency Bin, Provisional, Spoiled, and Challenged; then determine the total. Subtract that number from the "Used" total. The result should match the M100 "TOTAL BALLOTS" number printed on the tape. It should also match the last used ATV number minus the number of ballots in the emergency bin.

Note:  For the ??/??/?? election there were ??? ballot style(s) for precinct 19-09. Nominally ???? ballots were delivered.
