Based on Friday morning's statistics, 42.14 percent of Maricopa County voters cast ballots in the General Election, according to the Arizona Secretary of State's Office. That number may increase as early and provisional ballots are verified.
The Secretary of State's office has 221,000 early ballots and 83,000 provisional ballots statewide to be processed and counted from Tuesday's election. Of these, Maricopa County has about 170,000 uncounted early ballots and 55,000 provisional ballots to be verified.
State law gives the counties 10 calendar days to verify and process the remaining early and provisional ballots. That gives them until the end of Nov. 12. A state canvass to certify official election results for federal, statewide and legislative races is scheduled for Nov. 29.
