    Anyone know why the percentages (for votes counted) only increases 1-3% a day? Aren’t machines counting ballots?

  2. Vicki Lockwood says:

    The percentage that you are looking at is the percentage of actual votes cast in comparison to the number of voters registered to vote. So if it says “18%” that means only 18% of the possible voters cast a ballot that has been counted. The majority of the ballots have been counted, so the stragglers or those votes needing special interpretation, etc. are now being counted, but the percentage isn’t going to change much.
