CD2 Update: Barber Leads McSally 923 Votes

Posted By on Fri, Nov 16, 2012 at 9:00 AM


The latest numbers from the Arizona Secretary of State's Office show that Congressman Ron Barber now leads GOP challenger Martha McSally by 932 votes.

Pima County did not county any votes yesterday, but expects to get rolling this afternoon. Yesterday's press release from Pima County:

The Pima County Elections Department anticipates counting on Friday the remaining early ballots verified by the Pima County Recorder’s Office.

Of the approximately 261,450 early ballots verified by the Pima County Recorder’s Office, roughly 140 early ballots remain to be counted by the Pima County Elections Department.

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 11,299 provisional ballots so far. Of those, 927 have been counted.

Pima County Elections Director Brad Nelson said he expects the counting of provisional ballots also will continue Friday. The count will begin at 1 p.m.

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,, with the total number of ballots counted that day.

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