Arizona's knock-down, all-out Senate race is heading into overtime, as a neck-and-neck contest between two congresswomen collides with Arizona's sometimes glacial vote-counting procedures.

Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema were separated by a small fraction of the votes tabulated as of early Wednesday, with hundreds of thousands of uncounted ballots still outstanding.

Though the vast majority of Arizona voters cast their ballots early by mail, those who receive early ballots but then drop them off in person at polling stations on or close to Election Day can jam up the system.

That's because the state's most populous county, Maricopa, can take days to count those ballots while they simultaneously tabulate Election Day votes.

The so-called "late earlies" may not be counted until Thursday in the county, where about 60 percent of Arizona's voters live. Arizona counties with far fewer voters may also face long delays processing those ballots.

We may yet win Arizona.
