Agreement in ballot dispute in Barber-McSally race

Associated Press Tue Nov 13, 2012 5:14 PM

BISBEE There's an agreement that at least for now resolves a dispute over 130 provisional ballots that figure in Arizona's last undecided congressional race.

Attorneys for Cochise County, Democratic incumbent Ron Barber and a voter who supported Republican challenger Martha McSally reached the deal during a recess in a Cochise County Superior Court hearing Tuesday.

Deputy County Attorney David Fifer says counting of ballots is resuming and the 130 ballots will be included in the county's totals.

However, he says the 130 ballots' results also will be recorded separately so that there can be a new challenge if the 2nd Congressional District's final count is so tight that those ballots are decisive.

Moving forward.

1. Seems to be a strange deal... leaving room to fight later... but better than throwing them out!

Thanks for the news.

Guessing these are part of the half million or so uncounted?

Anything new on the Carmona vs. Flake race?

Also undecided, if I'm not mistaken.

Go blue, Arizona!

2. Still has a shot.

PHOENIX (Reuters) - With several hundred thousand ballots still to be counted in the race for an Arizona Senate seat, a Democrat who earlier conceded the race to his Republican rival was gaining and appeared to have a distant shot at the seat after all.
