Official Election Results
A canvass was held at 8:00 AM on Monday, March 9, 2015 in the City Council Chambers at Manhattan Beach City Hall. There were 552 Vote-by-Mail ballots and Provisional ballots counted in today’s canvass. The canvass consists of opening the returned vote-by-mail ballot envelopes, removing the ballots, accurately duplicating any damaged or defective ballots, and preparing the ballots for the ballot count.
