Steve Weir releases official election report for Contra Costa County

election results, 2010 election, contra costa county, steve weir, clerk-recorderSteve Weir, Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder, has released the official report for the November 2, 2010 California Gubernatorial election. Voter turnout in Contra Costa was 66% compared to statewide turnout of 60%. The closest race was decided Measure N a school bond measure in Knightsen which failed, two votes short of the 55% needed for passage.

Then there was the CA-11 Congressional race between incumbent Democrat Jerry McNerney, and GOP challenger David Harmer, that left Republicans grumbling; not to mention problems with voter registration bounty hunters changing party affiliation on the forms they handed in.

    I tried to download Steve Weir’s report but it is in something called scribd. I received the following message: “You Must be Logged in to Download a Document”

    So, in order to download it, I am required to register with scribd or facebook, which I refuse to do. Why should I have to give up my privacy to download a PUBLIC document?

    Is this requirement from Steve Weir or from HTC?

      Good question, thanks.

      Just want to clear up any confusion—the document is a report of some of the statistics and notable events that took place during the election count; including notable findings and what follow up can be taken to resolve problems. Thus I edited headline and replaced “results” with “report.”

      Official election results can be found at

      The report itself can also be found on the County Election site at http://cocovote.us/getdocument.aspx?id=435. It is the second item down in the right hand sidebar with no apparent URL (who still uses frames?)

      I understand your concern about privacy (I hate Facebook, too) and I apologize. Just that using Scribd is simplest place to host large PDF docs without taking the hit on resources. It’s not like the the County couldn’t keep a log of IP addresses that download docs, or ask for name and e-mail address for verification.

      That said. When there’s a perfect world, and complete internet security I’ll let you know. bgr
