The county election officer may move the canvass to the Monday next following the election if notice of such change is published prior to the canvass in a newspaper of general circulation within the county. Upon completion of such canvass, the county election officer of each county shall prepare an abstract of the vote of the presidential preference primary election in his or her county as such vote is determined by the county board of canvassers and shall promptly transmit the same to the secretary of state no later than the tenth day after the day of the election.
