The amount of uncounted ballots in Arizona has now surpassed the 630,000 mark, the Arizona Secretary of State's Office said in a release.

The number of uncounted ballots was originally 602,334 on Wednesday, but numbers for Cochise, Mohave and Yavapai counties weren't available.

In Maricopa County, Recorder Helen Purcell says 62,641 early ballots have been tabulated and approximately 116,000 provisional ballots will be processed for tabulation. She says about 237,000 early ballots remain to be processed for tabulation.

State law gives the counties 10 calendar days to verify and process the remaining early and provisional ballots. That gives them until Nov. 16.

A state canvass to certify official election results for federal, statewide and legislative races is scheduled Dec. 3.

Individuals who had insufficient identification when they went to vote at a polling place were allowed to cast a ``conditional provisional'' ballot.

They have until Nov. 14 to return to their county elections office with proper identification.
