More than 631,000 Arizona ballots still uncounted

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett now says there’s more than 631,000 early and provisional ballots statewide that have yet to be processed and counted.

The uncounted ballot total was 602,334 as of Wednesday, but numbers for Cochise, Mohave and Yavapai counties weren’t available.

Bennett announced Thursday that the uncounted ballot total stands at 631,274 statewide including nearly 460,000 early ballots.

Arizona’s counties have until Nov. 16 to verify and process the remaining early and provisional ballots. A state canvass to certify official election results for federal, statewide and legislative races is scheduled Dec. 3.

Voters who had insufficient identification when they went to a polling place were allowed to cast a “conditional provisional” ballot.

They have until Nov. 14 to return to their county elections office with proper ID.
