Humboldt County released the remaining ballots for us to scan late last week. As of Sunday night, we have fewer than 1500 ballots remaining to be scanned (each ballot is two sheets). That means we're 97% done with the scanning.
We hope to have our preliminary counts available by Tuesday, when the elections office certifies their results. Our incomplete results do not disagree with the official results in who has won and who has not.

Scanners will complete the initial set of ballots later today. We will now have to wait until the Elections Department is ready to provide us with the remaining ballots, roughly 12,000. That will likely take a week or so, after which it should take only two days of further scanning.
