FLORENCE – Pinal County has an estimated 41,000 early ballots and 1,800 provisional ballots still to be counted, the Board of Supervisors was told Wednesday morning.
Counting resumed Thursday morning, Deputy County Manager Himanshu Patel said, relaying a message from Elections Director Michele Forney.
“The polling places were busy all day with very few incidents of note. Our partnership with the Sheriff’s Department, particularly Ben Cook, our threat liaison officer, made a very smooth day. Local law enforcement was contacted for a few incidents that were quickly resolved,” according to Forney’s report.
“The Elections Department is grateful to the whole county for their assistance in having a smooth Election Day, particularly Facilities, Public Works, the Recorder’s Office, the Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff’s Posse, County Attorney’s Office, the Citizens Contact Center and the IT Department,” Forney said.
