PHOENIX – Arizona’s counties continue to tabulate ballots from the 2014 Primary Election. The following table details the ballots left to be counted, including early and provisional ballots.
State law gives the counties five business days, until the end of Wednesday, September 3, to verify and process the remaining early and provisional ballots.
Election results are unofficial until the Canvass, and by way of gentle reminder, our office does not “call”elections. A state canvass to certify official election results for federal, statewide and legislative races is scheduled for September 8.A chart included with the SOS letter shows estimated remaining votes to be tabulated:
