In 1896, the Board of State Canvassers was created (Chapter 202, Acts of 1896). Within thirty-five days after any State election, the Board meets to tabulate the votes cast for each candidate from the certified statements of votes made by the city and county boards of canvassers. The Board declares who is elected and delivers a certified determination of election results to the State Administrative Board of Election Laws. Thereafter, the State Administrative Board of Election Laws issues the Declaration of Results of the election, keeps the records of the Board of State Canvassers, and delivers a copy of the Declaration of Results to the Governor, who issues commissions to the persons elected.

The Board consists of five ex officio members (Code 1957, Art. 33, secs. 11-501 through 11-503).
