Most counties including all the big ones will run another batch of mail ballots this afternoon, starting with King County at 4:30 p.m.. Clark and Snohomish come in at 5 p.m. followed by Pierce and Spokane at 6 p.m.
This will become a daily event with elections officials opening and processing ballots throughout the day and then tabulating updated results at the end of the shift.
Here’s a handy little chart from the Secretary of State showing each county’s outstanding ballots and when they expect to count them. past elections show that most counties get a good-sized batch of ballots in the mail today and another Thursday. After that, ballots tend to trickle in for another week.
The best way to watch the statewide totals is the Secretary of State’s page here.
