After election day in Utah-04, Democrat Jim Matheson was ahead of Mia Love by 2,646 votes.
But there were approximately 72,000 provisional and absentee ballots yet to be counted. The results for the final canvass are being released today. We will update.

Provisional AND absentee?
I wonder what the breakdown is...absentees automatically count, right? Provisionals are not automatic....unless you mean provisionals that will be counted, after others are rejected.
It’s hard to win when your opponents LIE, CHEAT AND STEAL as a way of life.
‘PROVISIONAL’ means if it has votes for (D) it’s fine. If it has votes for (R) is is suspect and must be thrown out.............
Has Mia Love started throwing around “racist” and “hater” yet?
No...of course not.
Good Luck, Mia!
Pray for Love!!!!!!!!
Here’s an update:
“Matheson started the day holding a 2,646-vote lead after Election Day.
Utah County released unofficial updated numbers that showed Love shaving 1,193 votes from that lead. Scott Hogensen, the chief deputy clerk, said the final numbers could change some before they are presented to the county commission this afternoon, but they are not expected to vary by much.
Juab County has finalized its results, with Love picking up 27 new votes to 24 for Matheson, cutting just three votes from the lead, which currently stands at 1,450.
Salt Lake County had nearly 44,000 absentee and provisional ballots countywide. About 54 percent of the Election Day votes in the county were in the 4th District, meaning about 23,000 of the outstanding ballots would be expected to fall into that congressional district.”
If there were 23,000 provisionals and absentees in the Salt Lake County portion of the district remaining to be counted, then Mia Love would need a bit over 53% of them to take the lead. That sounds doable. We’ll find out soon whether she was able to make it.
Who is counting the votes?
And who is monitoring them?
In 2001 FR members (called an “angry mob” [I have the t-shirt])entered the counting rooms in FL and caught them punching chads for Gore and putting Bush votes in Gore's pile.
This counting has to be watched real closely.
See what happened in FL with West's attempt for a congressional seat, the vote was counted against him even though irregularities were found.
Provisional votes are from people who showed up at the wrong polling place, who messed up their ballot, etc. - which is why they almost invariably favor the Democrat candidate.
If someone can't get their act together and register properly and on time, well ahead of the election, it's just too damned bad for them.
How comes it seems like in all these razor-thin races that we NEVER win?
Where are the harbingers of ALL things Race related on this!?! The RICH, WHITE MAN is “stealing” the election from the Black Woman!!! Where is Debbie “They got whiter and more male” Washerwoman-Schiltz decrying the misogyny of it all??? Where are the Congressional Black Caucus Women to say they the old white man is picking on the young Black woman!?!
I make myself laugh sometimes too....the irony just drips.
Excellent post PA Mom.
Losing so many close House races is both bad news and good news. The bad news, is we lost them. The good news that most of the races we won were not even close.. meaning the GOP will many opportunities to advance in 2014 by taking another stab at the close races that were lost this year.
My DIL showed up to vote to find out that they had her down as receiving an early ballot. She was one of MANY and very unhappy about it. She had to vote provisional.
Just a coincidence that two conservative black Republicans both lose excruciatingly close contests. How much money was wasted by the GOP on pie in the sky hopes of winning Pennsylvania and Michigan that could have been diverted to assist West and Love?
There has been a lot of cheating in close races and even in not so close; I live in a GOP county in FLorida, but the Dems did everything from voter intimidation (mysterious legal letters) to hacking the database to keep turnout down. That wasn’t because they thought they had a chance in my county, but because they wanted the state to go for the Dems (which it did).
The whole key is to have huge margins that they can’t cheat their way around. Without cheating, we probably would have run...but we didn’t turn out enough voters to have a cheat-proof margin, and the Dems knew that.
We probably would have “won,” that is.
The system is so FUBAR'd I only trust one group to do it, the Military, i.e. the National Guard etc.

The volunteers earning $7.50 and hr. ain't cutting it for me....
