Pima County Vote Counting Update: All Early Ballots Now Ready for Tabulation

Posted By on Fri, Nov 9, 2012 at 10:02 AM

Rhonda Bodfield of the Pima County Communications Office has sent out a dispatch to let us know what's happening with the vote count:

Pima County finished counting 14,184 ballots Thursday, Nov. 8, as elections officials work to finalize results.

Roughly 53,000 ballots remain, out of the approximately 55,000 early ballots dropped off at the polls or that arrived in the mail and the estimated 27,000 provisional ballots issued on Election Day. Note: These numbers are best estimates. Please do not broadcast them as exact numbers.

Pima County will update its home page,, every night at 6 p.m. with the total number of ballots counted that day.

On Thursday, the Pima County Recorder’s Office finished the verification process for all of the early ballots. The cumulative total of early ballots that were signature-verified by the Pima County Recorder’s Office is 256,713.

Those early ballots were turned over to the Elections Department for processing and counting—a process observed by members of both political parties.

The Recorder’s Office will now focus on the verification of the provisional ballots, with a deadline of Nov. 16.

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

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.
