Latest update shows voter turnout at 71 percent

Dave Ammons at the Secretary of State's office sent out the latest - and likely last - update on voter turnout for the 2010 election. It'll be last because counties must certify results today which means they stop counting.
The total cast will be about 2.56 million out of 3.6 million registered. That's 71.18 percent, higher than any election since 1970 and well above turnout in the last several mid-term elections.
There are a handful of pending recounts across the state and the final results will be certified Dec. 2.
