Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
UPDATE: as of 6 PM, Cochise County revised downward their count for the day.The new numbers are 23,278 for Martha McSally and 15,191 for Ron Barber and 88 write ins.
so totals for the end of today are Barber 131,460 and McSally 131,171
This actually increases Barber's lead to 289.
a note: On November 2 Cochise County put out a press release noting that it had mailed out 33,873 PEVL,early Ballots and had 20,859 of them returned, (61.58%). By this evening's count. 18,531 have shown up in the tally so far, leaving 2,328 of the returned PEVLS that have not figured into the count. Remember some of the returned ballots may not contain a vote for any candidate in the Barber /McSally race.
Also important to note: the county sent out 13,014 PEVL ballots which either were never completed , were received by the county between the news release on Nov. 2 and Nov 6, or were turned in at the Polling place on election day and transferred to provisional ballots.
Cochise County news release stated that by law ,it could start tabulating early ballots on Nov. 2, but it also estimated that it would have all ballots counted by Friday , Nov.9.
That has not happened.
In addition, no other provisional ballots have shown up on the elections page tally referenced below. _______
EARLIER TODAY: These are the numbers for the Barber /McSally race as of 11/10/12, from the clarity elections site for Cochise and Pima counties
Barber : Cochise County, 15,368. Pima county 116,269. total 131,637.
McSally Cochise: 23,521. Pima, 107,893. Total 131,414.
So , as of this evening ,Ron Barber is ahead by 223 votes.
Both Cochise and Pima counties provided updates today.
no provisional ballots show up as being counted yet.
Link to the site and some more info after the hot orange tamale
There is a drop down menu for you to select individual counties.
in the window for each race on the left side of the page, you will also see 4 icons. one looks like a house, the second icon from the right looks like a divided rectangle. if you click on that ,it will give you a breakdown of early ballots, polling place ballots and provisional ballots counted.
also note that the Secretary of state pages and county news releases, etc. give different number at different times, so this site really is just good for measuring daily progress using its own numbers. these numbers were released this afternoon and some at about 5:30 PM.
