    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?
