Nearly 47,000 Ballots Remain To Be Counted in Pima County

Posted By on Wed, Nov 5, 2014 at 9:37 AM

Pima County election officials still need to count nearly 46,859 ballots, according to county spokesman Mark B. Evans.

Whether all those ballots will actually be counted depends on whether they are all legit, but the vast majority will count.

Here's a breakdown, as of this morning:

The Elections Department now has 14,200 ballots that have been verified as good ballots but still need to be counted.

The Pima County Recorder's Office has 22,528 early ballot that were dropped off at polling places yesterday and need to be properly verified by checking the signature on the envelope of the ballot. There are also 9,856 provisional ballots (or ballots that are questionably in some way, such as a ballot that was cast at a polling place even though a voter got an early ballot in the mail and lost it) and 275 conditional provisional ballots (which means there's some question as to whether the ballot is legit).

It's unknown how many of the ballots are in Congressional District 2, where Republican Martha McSally was leading Democratic Congressman Ron Barber by fewer than three dozen votes, or Legislative District 9, where Republican state Rep. Ethan Orr was leading Democratic challenger Randy Friese by 65 votes.

More details as we get them.
