About Two-Thirds of Early Ballots Still on the Loose

Posted By on Fri, Oct 22, 2010 at 3:16 PM

In case you’re wonky enough to care about this stuff: About one third of the 246,375 early ballots that were sent out have been returned and processed, according to Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez.

Roughly 81,300 ballots had been corralled by the Recorder’s Office as of this afternoon, with more in trays awaiting a signature check before they’re sent to the Elections Department.

That means there are a lot of voters who still haven’t made up their minds—or at least haven’t had time to fill out their ballot. So if you’re a candidate, there are plenty of potential persuadable voters out there.

BTW: It’s your last day to request an early ballot, so if you want one, call (520) 740-4330 now.

Keeping in mind that both congressional districts stretch into different counties, here’s how the picture is shaping up in Pima County:
