ELECTION UPDATE

Following the election on Tuesday,

As of Monday morning: about 41,000 provisional ballots were cast, 95,000 absentee ballots were still outstanding, and 30,000 mail-in ballots have been accepted but not tallied.


Local boards will continue to review the eligibility of provisional ballots over the next several days, and voters who cast provisional ballots may provide additional information necessary for their vote to be counted until 5 PM Thursday, November 12.
