Meanwhile, Pima County expects to finish counting the roughly 1,550 early ballots that remain this afternoon. Ballot counting begins at 2 p.m.

Pima County officials expect to begin counting provisional ballots on Thursday.

Here's a press release with details from Pima County:

Pima County finished counting an additional 5,515 early ballots Tuesday, Nov. 13, as elections officials continue working to finalize election results.

Of the 261,363 early ballots verified by the Pima County Recorder’s Office as of Tuesday, roughly 1,550 early ballots remain to be counted by the Pima County Elections Department.

The count will resume at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14. Brad Nelson, director of the Pima County Elections Department, said that he expects all early ballots to be counted by the end of the day Wednesday.
Approximately 27,000 provisional ballots were issued at the polling places on Election Day. The Recorder’s Office has verified and turned over to the Elections Department for counting 2,386 provisional ballots so far. The Recorder has until Nov. 16 to verify the remaining provisional ballots.

Nelson said he expects the counting of provisional ballots will probably begin Thursday.

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.

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

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