The vote totals for each candidate should be announced at the meeting where the election results are announced.

Also the totals go in the minutes.

See RONR, p. 403 for the proper form.

While some people, recalling what was done in elementary school, think only the teacher should know the vote totals, that is most certainly not supported by any rule in RONR. There are many good reasons for doing this, a subject thoroughly discussed in an excellent article by John Stackpole in the National Parliamentarian.
