Ballot counting continued today for the 4th day since election night and there are now roughly 260,000 ballots that still need to be counted. Voter turnout has risen to 38.62%, which is nearing the predicted 40%.

Most races have not changed notably since our last update, however there are a couple races that continue to fluctuate and are still too close to call. Races that are separated by less than 2000 votes or 0.5% trigger a mandatory recount. See below for updates—
