The first day of the vote count is over. Hoffa-Hall currently have 53.4% of the vote in the East. Fred Zuckerman Teamsters United have 14,250 votes for 46.6% of the ballots counted so far.

After the Eastern region ballots are counted, the votes will be counted in the South, Central, West and Canada in that order. A drawing was held on Sunday to determine the order.

The vote count is run by the independent Election Supervisor. Teamsters United has a team of volunteer observers on site, monitoring the count.

Voter eligibility needs to be determined before the ballots are counted so it may take some time before the first results are in today.
