Election results roll in for county and state officials, props
WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Election results have been decided in some races while others remain undecided as ballots continue to be counted throughout the state.
According to Coconino County Recorder Patty Hansen, as of Nov. 9 the county still needs to process about 10,000 early ballots and 5,000 provisional ballots county-wide.
“My guess is that there will be a few hundred from Williams in those that need to be counted,” Hansen said.
Hansen said the county hopes to have the counting and processing of ballots done by Nov. 21 or 22.
“It’s a slow process to get all the provisionals done,” She said.
Hansen said the county will continue to update the counts on the Coconino County Elections website: http://www.coconino.az.gov/elections
