    count and tally

    Moments after the results were tallied Bisson walked over to Horwath and gave her his support.

    could "count" have been used instead of "tally", please?
    which one is more appropriate?
    which one is more informal?

    Re: count and tally

    You can use 'counted' in place of 'tallied', either one is correct. However, we like to use the verb 'to tally' in this type of situation where votes are counted. It is a more formal verb usage than the verb 'to count'.
