With a few more ballots counted in Cochise County, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has slightly widened her lead over Republican challenger Jesse Kelly. Giffords now leads Kelly by 2,356 votes. (You can find the latest results here.)

In Pima County, there are roughly 47,000 ballots left to count, according to Pima County Elections Director Brad Nelson.

Nelson tells us that they’re just getting started on the first batch of early ballots that were turned in on Election Day. You can watch them count the votes here.

He estimates that his team will count about 8,500 ballots by the close of business today and that count will be uploaded to the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office.

He expects to count at least 10,000 more tomorrow and hopes to have most of the early ballots handled by Saturday.

Nelson is still waiting on more ballots that are being processed by Pima County Recorder F. Ann Rodriguez, who has to ensure that the ballots that still remain come from legitimate voters.
