I am confused. Not all the ballots in Florida were counted yet but yet Florida is given to Bush?

The rest of the states are going as planned. We shall see what happens in Ohio, but it may all come down to Florida once again.

The provisional votes cannot be counted for 11 days, and state officials said Tuesday night they would not declare a winner if the margin between President Bush and Sen. John Kerry was narrower than the number of provisional ballots.
The Florida suit, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, asked that absentee ballots mailed within the United States be subject to the same deadline, Nov. 12. as overseas ballots.

from what I understand, Kerry won Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties (the usual democratic counties) but the panhandle is what sealed the deal for Bush.
In the November 2000 US Presidential Election, voters on the Florida panhandle, who live in the central time zone, were improperly told by television broadcasters that the voting centers had closed.
