Hundreds of thousands of ballots still being counted from San Diego’s primary election

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego Registrar of Voters reported a low voter turnout of 28 percent on their website, however not all of the votes that have been cast have been counted, so we won’t have final results and official numbers for several weeks. And when we do, it’s possible that some close races may be reversed.

That 28 percent does not reflect all of the ballots that are part of the overall vote count, meaning provisional ballots, ballots received on election day, ballots that will be dropped off by the postal service as late as this Friday, and military and overseas ballots.

The registrar website reports that there may be up to an additional 350,000 mail ballots and provisional ballots that still need to be counted.

With hundreds of thousands of ballots yet to be counted this could have a huge impact on San Diego’s close races, and it could be another several weeks before a final count is in.
