CD2 Update: Barber Leads McSally by 330 Votes

Posted By on Sun, Nov 11, 2012 at 6:38 PM


As of Sunday night, Congressman Ron Barber leads Republican challenger Martha McSally by 330 votes, following a report of new vote totals from Cochise County.

Pima County did not count votes today.

This was the first time that Cochise County has delivered a new vote count without McSally taking the lead back from Barber in the race.

More on the back-and-forth race can be found here.

Meanwhile, Pima County will resume counting ballots tomorrow. An update from Pima County spokeswoman Rhonda Bodfield:

The Pima County Elections Department will resume counting approximately 3,000 early ballots Monday morning, Nov. 12.

The count is expected to begin at 9 a.m., with the batch completed by the early afternoon.
Elections staff may count additional ballots in the afternoon, depending on the amount of ballots readied for tabulation.

In the interim, the Recorder’s Office continues working to verify the approximately 27,000 provisional ballots issued at the polling places. The office has until Nov. 16 to finish verifying those ballots.

An as-yet-undetermined number of provisional and conditional ballots issued at the polling places will not be certified for a number of different reasons, including if voters failed to provide the appropriate identification, were not registered to vote, or already cast an early ballot before showing up at the polling places. Counting of provisional ballots will proceed as batches are received and processed.

As Election 2012 is finalized, daily updates will be posted by 6 p.m. on Pima County’s home page,, with the total number of ballots counted that day.

By statute, Pima County must certify its election results by Nov. 26.
