The findings include:
  • 611,058 ballots were transmitted to UOCAVA-covered voters;
  • Of these, 211,749 ballots or 34.7 percent, were returned and submitted for counting;
  • 197,390 ballots, or 93.2 percent, were counted; and
  • 14,824 ballots were rejected, most commonly because the ballot was not received on time or missed a deadline.
