LA TIMES: November 9, 2012 - More than 3 million ballots still to be counted in California

More than 3 million ballots still to be counted in California
November 9, 2012 | 7:00 am


For those California candidates whose contests were too close to call on election day, patience is being recommended.

While more than nine million ballots were counted Tuesday, but state election officials say there are more than three million others that are uncounted and still need to be tabulated throughout California.

The uncounted are mostly vote-by-mail ballots submitted on election day and provisional ballots that include those turned in by people whose names were not on the lists at polling places, but who believe they are registered to vote.

The Secretary of State’s Office reported 3.08 million uncounted ballots late Thursday, including 2.1 million vote-by-mail ballots. That list does not include uncounted ballots from 12 of the 58 counties, including San Bernardino and Santa Barbara counties.

<...>


Prop #37 didn't lose by ~500K votes if "more than 3 million ballots still to be counted in California." What a premature conclusion.

1. The Pres. is already up by 3 Million votes over Romney

He should get about 2/3 of those 3 million not yet counted Cali votes which will put him up by 5 million popular votes over Romney. This should also push Romney's total firmly down into the 47% territory, which sounds about just right.

4. 100% precincts partially reporting does not equal 100% of the vote has been counted.

About Election Results and This Website

1.Will the unofficial election results change after election night? When will all of the election results be final?

Yes, election results will change throughout the canvass period as vote-by-mail ballots, provisional ballots and other ballots are tallied. Depending on the volume of these types of ballots, it takes up to 28 days for county elections officials to verify voter records and determine if ballots have been cast by eligible voters. How often these results are updated will vary based on the size of each county and the process each local elections office uses to tally and report votes.

County elections officials must report their final results to the Secretary of State by December 7. The Secretary of State then will certify the results of the election by December 14. (Elections Code sections 15210, 15372, 15375, 15400, 15401, 15501, 15503)

5. This is SCANDALOUS! This could mean that Prop 34, repeal of the DP

could very well have passed.

I've signed the petition to have all those ballots counted and to have the tally made public.

Jeezus . . . is the CA Democratic Party no different than the National Republican Party?? I'm beginning to wonder . . .

6. Individual counties tally the votes, not the party. Results are due to Sec of State by Dec. 7.

7. Thanks, pinto. I was getting rather upset here.



That said, I hope Prop 34 passes. I would really want to get rid of the death penalty, and if Los Angeles' ballots haven't been tallied completely, there's a strong chance it's still possible.

We'll see . . . and I'll keep my cool.

8. I was really pulling for Prop 34 too. We got close.

(aside) Not sure where the outstanding ballots are, what counties. They're all absentee / provisional from my understanding. We'll see...

9. Update on Prop 37 (GMO labeling) - only very minor improvement toward passage.
