    have a date of 11/4 at 11:00 pm or very early on 11/5, so doubtful any absentee are including in those numbers.

    •  Good point. (0+ / 0-)

      I checked Chemung county, and they didn't update their results since the election day, even though they had to count the absentees to resolve NY-29.

      Steuben has actually updated yesterday, though, with official results.

      Onondaga seems recent, too (the 20th)

      Erie is also reporting 0% absentees counting (kudos to them for having the stat).

      My home county, Tompkins actually has everything but blanks reported: "(All results final, though accurate Blank, Void and Write Ins (scattering) are not posted in these reports. Check back Monday (12/1) for official final numbers.)".
      I think they updated it recently --- turn out in my precinct is up to 81%, with the city up to solid 74% (though IV-1 is still disappointing 44%). County-wide, it's 0.79/42761, up from 0.77/42680 in 2004 (but Tompkins county is special).

      Monroe's election results website is down.

      NYC doesn't seem to post anything?

      •  More on absentee counts... (0+ / 0-)

        Though they don't have 2008 results up, NYC has detailed stats on ballot kinds for 2004:
        http://www.vote.nyc.ny.us/...

        Basically, about 7.24% of counted ballots that year required some sort of special handling; a lot of these were actually affidavit ballots and not absentees.

        So I guess the magnitude does make sense, after all.
        I wonder if with growth of early voting getting election outcomes the same night will be a thing of the past?
