According to the Associated Press, Garcia held a slim 400 vote lead over Smith with 86.82% of precincts reporting.

As of Friday, Ventura County had 2,516 unprocessed ballots and Los Angeles County had 66,245 unprocessed ballots, though it was not immediately clear how many of those ballots were cast in the district.

    An eyebrow-raising tweet from North Carolina Democrats claimed Monday that "thousands of outstanding votes to be cast" could swing key races in the battleground state. North Carolina is one of at least 18 states allowing voters to "cure" ballots rejected for deficient information or missing signatures. Democrats in the state say they're seeking volunteers to help cure absentee and provisional ballots that they think could prove decisive in some races.   "Our team is helping cure absentee & provisional ballots -- and we need your help. There are thousands of outstanding votes to be cast -- and these could be the difference in determining crucial elections," the North Carolina Democratic Party wrote in a tweet Monday.  A spokesperson for the party didn't immediately return a request for comment on which races the party thinks could hinge on cured ballots.  WHERE THINGS STAND: BATTLE FOR THE SENATE North Carolina gives individual counties until Nov. 13 to report results, granting more time for counting provisional and absentee ballots than other states.  Fox News has yet to call the North Carolina presidential race. President Donald Trump leads President-elect Joe...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead in Arizona is now under 17,000 votes and continues to shrink as the state tallies the outstanding ballots. Biden’s lead in Arizona, which Fox News called for the former vice president on the night of the election, dipped to 16,952 as of Sunday afternoon, cutting the 29,861 vote lead Biden held on Friday by over 12,000. There are roughly 77,000 ballots — 29,000 regular ballots and 48,000 provisional — remaining, which could very well determine if outlets such as Fox News were wrong in calling the Grand Canyon State so early: Arizona Update Latest DropTrump: 8,567 (64%)Biden: 4,491 (33%) Biden lead has now shrunk to 16,952. There are ~29k regular ballots remaining, 48k provisional. If provisionals are people who requested VBM but then went to polling place on Election Day probably good for DJT. — Chris Buskirk (@thechrisbuskirk) November 9, 2020 The Trump campaign has maintained that claims of an Arizona victory for Biden were premature. According to reports, the president will hold campaign rallies to draw attention to his legal battles, including in Arizona....
              North Carolina legislative leaders are demanding that the State Board of Elections release data on total outstanding ballots to provide transparency. The co-chairs of the State Senate and House Elections Committees sent the demand in a letter Friday to Karen Brinson Bell, executive director of the North Carolina State Board of Elections, which is controlled by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper (pictured above). The announcement was made by N.C. Senate Leader Phil Berger.  The letter was signed by Senate Redistricting and Elections Committee Co-Chairs Ralph Hise, Warren Daniel and Paul Newton, and House Elections and Ethics Committee Co-Chairs Destin Hall and Holly Grange. Citing state law, the co-chairs “demand the immediate disclosure and public release of the total number of currently outstanding absentee ballots in the possession of the U.S. Postal Service and entered into the BallotTrax system.” The letter also says: We further demand the release of any internal projections, analysis, or preliminary information in possession of the Board regarding the total number and identity of those ballots. It is critical that...
    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) gave an update the state of vote-counting in the Peach State and said there will be a recount. Former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads President Donald Trump by about 1,100 votes. What's going on in Georgia? Raffensperger held a news conference Friday morning to give an update on the tallying of votes in the state, saying that the results have been and will remain extremely close. As a result, he said, there will be a recount. According to Raffensperger, there are still 8,890 military ballots outstanding that will be counted if they are returned by the close of business Friday and were postmarked Nov. 4. Out of 5 million votes cast, the margin will be only a few thousand, he predicted. The secretary said the state said the race is still too close to call. "With a margin that small, there will be a recount in Georgia," he said, adding, "The stakes are high, and emotions are high on all sides. We will not let...
    Joe Gloria, registrar of voters for Clark County, Nevada, said that of the ballots the county has received, 63,262 have yet to be counted. Biden is leading in the county, which includes Las Vegas, by 431,863 votes to Mr. Trump's 367,279. Among those, 34,743 were returned by voters to drop-off locations on Election Day. Another 24,311 mail-in ballots were pending as of Election Day, and 4,208 were received from the U.S. Postal Service on November 3 and November 4.  Staff in Clark County are prepared to count 51,000 ballots throughout the day Thursday and results will be reported before 1 p.m. ET Friday, Garcia said. He added that there are more than 60,000 provisional ballots cast during early voting and on Election Day that are outstanding. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox Garcia dismissed allegations of voter fraud that have been made by members of the Trump campaign, saying he is "not aware of any improper ballots that are being processed."

    Georgia's top election official said he expects the state to finish counting remaining ballots in the race between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden by midday Thursday.  Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, told WSB Radio in Atlanta that officials were still tallying about 50,000 ballots, most of which are in Fulton County, which includes most of Atlanta, and Chatham County, where Savannah is located. NO CLEAR WINNER IN PRESIDENTIAL RACE AS VOTE COUNTING CONTINUES, ELECTION HANGS IN BALANCE “We’re looking at by lunchtime having most of this knocked out,” Raffensperger said. "By and large, all the big numbers are in." As of late Thursday morning, Georgia was one of five states that had not yet reported complete election results. The race is still too early to call in those states; neither candidate has met the 270-electoral vote threshold needed to win the presidency.  Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling said officials are still trying to determine how many outstanding provisional ballots need to be counted but said he hoped there would be a resolution by the end of the day.  TRUMP CLAIMS VICTORY WITH MANY STATES STILL UNDECLARED, HINTS AT POSSIBLE SUPREME COURT CASE...

Sign up to receive Grist's top stories in your inbox. It's the day after the 2020 presidential election, but Americans have no certainty about who will be their next president. Despite predictions of an easy win for Democratic nominee Joe Biden, it looks as though either he or President Trump will just barely cross the electoral college vote threshold needed to claim victory. Mail-in ballots in key battleground states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Nevada are still being counted. These votes could well determine the victor, given the razor-thin margins in the half dozen swing states where the race is too close to call. No matter what, it's going to be close. One thing that is certain, however, is that as of today the U.S. is officially withdrawn from the 2016 Paris climate agreement. This makes the U.S. the first nation in the world to formally leave the pact, which commits...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Trump campaign is suing the City of Philadelphia to stop the vote count after, they say, campaign observers have not been given proper access to witness what is happening. President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, attorney Rudy Giuliani, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and staffer Corey Lewandowski spoke at the last-minute press conference in front of Atlantic Aviation near the Philadelphia International Airport. They are alleging fraud in the vote tallying happening in Philadelphia. Eric Trump also says the campaign is declaring Pennsylvania a win for the president, even though there are still hundreds of thousands of outstanding ballots and the race still being too close to call. At issue here is how Trump poll watchers are observing the vote tallying at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Giuliani alleges those observers are being kept more than 30 feet away and are not able to see whether the mail-in ballots are valid, which is why this lawsuit has been filed in Pennsylvania. [email protected] and @RudyGiuliani says there is cheating happening in Philadelphia. “They’re trying to...
    The North Carolina State Board of Elections will not "prognosticate" on general election race results as roughly 117,000 mail-in ballots are still outstanding, elections board Chair Damon Circosta said at a news conference on Wednesday afternoon. "We anticipate that some of the questions that will come for us today will ask to prognosticate who will the eventual winners be," Circosta said. "That is not our job." REPUBLICAN MARK ROBINSON TO BECOME NC'S FIRST BLACK LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR Nearly 75% of registered voters "made their voices heard" in North Carolina, Circosta said. The presidential contest and balance of power in the Senate may depend on North Carolina voters, but results may not arrive until mid-November, when county-level canvass meetings are held.

    President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden are in a hotly contested race in the battleground state of Michigan, where Biden has taken the lead with a large number of outstanding absentee ballots yet to be counted. Roughly 96% of the vote has been counted as of Wednesday morning, with Biden leading Trump by around 30,000 votes. Yet the Detroit Free Press reports that roughly 100,000 ballots still need to be counted before Michigan can announce the winner. The remaining ballots are absentee ballots and are expected to tilt in favor of Biden, expanding his lead. The estimate of outstanding ballots is based on total voter participation numbers released by the state government. Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said delays in the vote count were expected and that state election officials are working to ensure that every vote is counted. "Election officials worked through the night to #CountEveryVote. That work continues," Benson tweeted Wednesday morning. "Hundreds of thousands of ballots in our largest jurisdictions are still being counted,...
    Getty A previous election in Wisconsin. Wisconsin’s top election official says almost all outstanding votes have now been counted in Wisconsin in the 2020 election except for provisional ballots and a few hundred votes in a single small community, but official results won’t be known until a canvassing process is completed. That’s a process in which local clerks double check their vote counts. That news comes as President Donald Trump’s campaign says he will request a recount in Wisconsin. “There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results. The President is well within the threshold to request a recount and we will immediately do so,” Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien said in a statement, according to The Hill. The comments came from Meagan Wolfe, Wisconsin’s chief election official, in a virtual news conference, which you can see below. “Every single one of those jurisdictions has submitted their unofficial results, except for one tiny township of less than 300 voters,” she said. “We have no reason to believe...
    DETROIT (Reuters) - Michigan, a key battleground state that will help determine who wins the U.S. presidential election, is still counting "tens of thousands" of ballots and expects to have an unofficial tally by the end of the day, the state's secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, told reporters. "We know that tens of thousands of ballots are still outstanding and need to be tabulated," she said in a news conference, including in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Flint, Kalamazoo and other cities. Benson said she is optimistic the majority of ballots cast on or before Election Day will be tabulated in an unofficial count by the end of the day. Democratic candidate Joe Biden is narrowly leading Republican President Donald Trump with about 96% of the votes tallied, according to the Detroit Free Press. Trump narrowly won Michigan in the 2016 election. "The number of outstanding ballots is still greater than the margin of difference in many races," Benson said. "Our goal is to ensure that we are being transparent, but also fully accurate." (Reporting by Ben Klayman in Detroit and Rajesh...

    By Scott Bauer | Associated Press MADISON, Wis. — Democrats and Republicans in the battleground state of Wisconsin were pushing Tuesday to get 320,000 outstanding absentee ballots returned by the close of polls on Election Day after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to extend the deadline to receive and count ballots, as Democrats had wanted. “This is an all-hands-on-deck final push,” said Ben Wikler, who chairs the Wisconsin Democratic Party, which has been advocating absentee voting more aggressively than Republicans. But the message is the same for Republicans who decided to mail in their ballots amid a surge in coronavirus cases in Wisconsin. “If you do it absentee, do it now, do it quickly,” said Andrew Hitt, chairman of the Wisconsin Republican Party. Democrats argued in a federal lawsuit that more time should be allotted for ballots to arrive by mail and be counted because of the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic. Republicans countered that voters had plenty of options to vote on time and that the rules shouldn’t be changed so close to the election. The Supreme Court,...
