4 November, two million votes to be counted:
Plenty left to change the outcome, but Harris' side is buoyed by knowing that something over 400,000 of the uncounted ballots are in Los Angeles County. She out-polled Cooley significantly in Democratic L.A. County, and her people believe the votes still to be counted lean heavily toward late-arriving absentees that would benefit her. Cooley's side also sees reason for optimism, so stay tuned. This could take as long as a month to settle.We voted early, by mail; perhaps our ballot arrived late, or hasn't yet been counted.
6 November, lead changes.
Republican Steve Cooley has erased Kamala Harris' lead and gone up by 22,817 votes as the late vote counting stands now in the state attorney general race. Hard to know how many votes are still out there. "We expect the numbers - and the lead - to fluctuate during the vote counting process over the next few weeks," says an email from Cooley consultant Kevin Spillane. "But this is positive news for the Cooley campaign."
