Meanwhile, Prop 409, which would allow the city to sell bonds to resurface roads and fix potholes, is passing by just 583 votes.

Pima County has finished got through more than 10,000 ballots today. An estimated 14,000 provisional ballots remain to be counted.

Here's the press release from Pima County:

While a final tally is still days away, Pima County is finished counting all of the early ballots verified by the Pima County Recorder’s Office and is making progress on counting the provisional ballots remaining from Election 2012.

All of the 261,453 early ballots verified by the Pima County Recorder’s Office have been counted.
And by late this evening, the Recorder’s Office anticipates turning over all of the remaining valid provisional ballots.

Approximately 27,000 provisional ballots were issued at the polling places on Election Day, although some will be disqualified for varied reasons, including if voters were not registered to vote or already cast an early ballot before showing up at the polling place.

Of the provisional ballots, nearly 11,484 have been counted.

Pima County Elections Director Brad Nelson said the office will spend Saturday processing the remaining ballots and expects the count to continue Sunday.

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.

The County will send out a media advisory Saturday with the anticipated count time on Sunday.
