TUCSON, Ariz., June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced that the independent inspectors of elections, IVS Associates, Inc., have certified the voting results of the Company's Annual Meeting held on June 15, 2009, confirming the preliminary results reported by Providence on June 15, 2009.

Excluding shares held by the dissident group, Providence's director nominees received approximately 86.1% and 82.8%, respectively, of the shares represented at the meeting while the dissident group received less than 2%.

Final vote totals will be included in the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2009 to be filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
