    A question came up our Facebook page: “Who’s going to win the auditor’s race? … as in, which precincts are outstanding?”

    Actually, with vote-by-mail, there are no particular precincts remaining uncounted. Instead, the uncounted votes are just whatever ballots were returned very late (postmarked on Tuesday, dropped in a box late on Tuesday). There is no evidence about how those late ballots are different from early ballots, so we’ll just have to watch and see.
