Polls have been closed for a day, and we still don't know the outcome of some of the most consequential races from the 2022 midterms. In Arizona, hundreds of thousands of ballots are outstanding statewide, leaving the results of important races, like the Gubernatorial and Senate, unclear. (You can follow RNLA Chair Harmeet Dhillon for the latest on Arizona.)
And an additional ~ 125k absentees mailed in Saturday to Tuesday. Again, we expect to pick up votes from all these batches.— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) November 9, 2022
Most recent Arizona outstanding ballot counts, confirmed by counties. These are mainly Election Day or late drop off/“late early”ballots.— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) November 9, 2022
La Paz: 992
Nevada is experiencing a similar problem, making the outcome of the state's hotly contested Senate race up in the air.
Roughly 27500 mail ballots in Clark. Election Day drop Box total (should be less favorable for Dems) announced later.— Josh Holmes (@HolmesJosh) November 9, 2022
Roughly 23k statewide lead for LAXALT. Rural votes also outstanding w/ heavy GOP lean.
Remember Dems only +5% in Clark
The math is pretty good for LAXALT.
As we noted yesterday, Florida's administration of elections provides a stark contrast. The outcomes of all major races were determined on Election Day. This has allowed state officials to get back to governing—especially as a tropical storm is expected to hit the state over the next few days.
If #Florida can count 7.5 million ballots in 5 hours how can it take days for some states to count less than 2 million?— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) November 9, 2022
It is imperative that states take election reforms seriously in the future for Americans to have faith in the outcome of our elections.
