You are probably correct.
But since Romney won Arizona by less than 200,000 votes and there are still 600,000 outstanding votes, it could very well have an effect on the
Presidential election - it could give the President 11 more Electoral College votes.
Lets do the math. President Obama got 75% of the Latino Vote. Suppose 75% of the uncounted ballots are from Latino voters, that is 450,000 Latino
votes. And 75% of that would be 337,500. So maybe Obama will win Arizona after all the votes are counted.
But don't hold your breath. I pulled that 75% of the uncounted ballots are Latino figure out of my backside and absentee and provisional ballots
usually go more conservative than polling day.
But it is very clear that these uncounted ballots COULD
affect the Presidential election.
