Barber/McSally Update (Gabby Giffords' seat)

Pima County crews counted more than 2,000 early and provisional ballots yesterday. Thousands more provisional ballots still need to be counted.

Election workers have until the end of tomorrow to verify those.

The latest numbers still show a tight race for Congressional District 2.

Democrat Ron Barber's lead now stands at 923 votes over Republican Martha McSally. That is up from 709 vote lead this morning.

3. Is this going to be the final (as well as first) count?

Or is there an inevitable recount with the results so close?

6. In Arizona, I think a recount will be conducted if...

...the difference between candidates is one tenth of a percent of all votes cast for the candidates. This may also require certification by a superior court judge, before the recount can begin. I think that other challenges, such as one mounted by a candidate, have to meet other, more stringent and time-consuming, requirements. Don't quote me on the above, though.
