The observer reports that by the time she left at 4:45 PM yesterday, the county had finished a large precinct and only about 3,700 of the 6, 834 votes had been counted. However, she reports that the county's plan was to keep going and finish the recount last night.
Of those 3,700 votes there were 17 challenges. The observer reports that the process was slow because: 1) there was only one table; 2) there was a debate about challenges in the morning; and 3) when more than one precinct voted at the same location, they used the same voting machine. Those ballots had to then be sorted by precinct.
