Almost half of Cochise County ballots cast in Nov. 6 election still to be counted
BISBEE — With approximately 24,775 ballots still uncounted, it may be a while before some of the contests on the Nov. 6 ballot are decided, Cochise County election officials said Wednesday.
Juanita Murray, county election director, said 30,645 ballots were counted in the general election completed on Tuesday. That includes around 11,000 early ballots that were tabulated prior to the polls opening.
On Wednesday, Murray and her staff of two people were working with a team of representatives from the Democrat and Republican parties to tabulate the write-in candidates. With so many write-ins this year, this hand-count will take some time, Murray said.
