Begich vs. Stevens Resumes Today

The state of Alaska will begin counting today the remaining 90,000 ballots which have yet to be tallied (in other words 29% of the vote). The current count gives convicted Republican felon, Ted Stevens, a 3,257 vote lead.
Current Vote Totals
Begich 103,337
Stevens 106,594
In a press release yesterday, the Alaska Division of Elections expects that 50,000 votes will be counted tomorrow alone. The rest will be counted on Friday, and everyone is hopeful the election will be certified on November 25th..unless there's a recount.

Here's a breakdown of votes that remain uncounted. From the Anchorage Daily News:
  • 61,000 absentee votes
  • 9,500 early votes
  • More than 20,000 "questioned ballots"
