PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett now says there's more than 631,000 early and provisional ballots statewide that have yet to be processed and counted.
The uncounted ballot total was 602,334 as of Wednesday, but numbers for Cochise, Mohave and Yavapai counties weren't available.
Bennett announced Thursday that the uncounted ballot total stands at 631,274 statewide including nearly 460,000 early ballots.
In Maricopa County, Recorder Helen Purcell says 62,641 early ballots have been tabulated and approximately 116,000 provisional ballots will be processed for tabulation. She says about 237,000 early ballots remain to be processed for tabulation.
Arizona's counties have until Nov. 16 to verify and process the remaining early and provisional ballots. A state canvass to certify official election results for federal, statewide and legislative races is scheduled Dec. 3.
