Precinct by Precinct Report for May 6, 2017 Elections

Pursuant to Section 67.017 of the Texas Election Code (the “Code”), all political subdivisions must file precinct by precinct returns for all candidates and measures for each election with the Secretary of State.  The Code requires the returns to be submitted in an electronic form.  There are three methods you can use to submit this report information to our office:

  1. You can put your returns into a Secretary of State defined Excel spread sheet and attach the spreadsheet to a web browser.  The instructions (PDF) for completing the precinct returns report are available on our website;
  2. You can attach a file from your vote count machine (confer with your vendor for specific details);
  3. You can “build” your own report by inputting your precinct returns directly into the system. Since the state does not have information specific to your election, you will have to update the information required to report your election results.

The website for entering precinct to precinct returns is currently available.

Precinct by precinct returns are required to be filed with this office no later than 30 days after the election.  The deadline for this election is Monday, June 5, 2017.  You must include both the early votes and the election day votes for candidates and measures in each precinct race being reported.  Note that you should not input your results until after you have canvassed your election

If your election was cancelled, please follow the procedures to set up your election and then follow the cancellation procedures that are included on page 15 of the instructions (PDF) posted on our website.
