Skip to comments.California Unprocessed Ballots Report (Over 500,000 uncounted votes from only 7 counties)
Posted on 11/08/2012 1:32:40 PM PST by Strategerist
During each election cycle, hundreds of thousands of ballots are not counted on Election Day. Elections officials have approximately one month to complete their extensive tallying and certification work (known as the official canvass). Most notably, voting by mail has increased significantly in recent years and many vote-by-mail ballots arrive on Election Day. In processing vote-by-mail ballots, elections officials must confirm each voter's registration status, verify each voter's signature on the vote-by-mail envelope, and ensure each person did not vote elsewhere in the same election.
Other ballots that are processed after Election Day include provisional ballots (processed similar to vote-by-mail ballots), and ballots that are damaged or cannot be machine-read and must be remade by elections officials.
The Unprocessed Ballots Report (PDF) features unofficial county updates on the number of outstanding ballots that still need to be processed during the official canvass. This information is voluntarily reported by county elections officials and may not be complete. State law requires county elections officials to report their final results to the Secretary of State by December 7. The Secretary of State then has until December 14 to certify the results of the election.

An infintite amount of nonsense has been written and spoken about a supposed "turnout gap" and theories about what caused it, for a gap that likely doesn't even exist - you CANNOT compare final certified vote totals for McCain from 2008 to day after the election totals for Romney.
No you can’t, and at least some of those counties are heavily Conservative.
Others are Leftist though.
Both sides will be bumped up a little.
The polls closed in California and the next second everyone declared the Democrats the winners. Not much mystery about voting there in old California.
“Note that the vast majority of counties in California have not even provided the state with a total of their uncounted ballots at all. “
Why would they. They may have to create more in order have the votes come out the way they want.
