Central counting center
A facility where ballots and/or results from multiple polling places are tallied. In jurisdictions which do not use equipment that tallies votes at the polling places, the central counting center is the only place where votes are counted. In jurisdictions which use equipment that tallies votes at the polling places, the central counting center may be the facility where tallies from all the polling places are compiled, and where absentee or other mail-in ballots are counted.
