PHOENIX -- Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett says there's more than 600,000 early and provisional ballots statewide that have yet to be processed and counted.

Bennett says the uncounted ballot total was 602,334 as of Wednesday.

That includes Maricopa County's 344,000 uncounted early ballots and 115,000 provisional ballots yet to be verified.

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. 13 to return to their county elections office with proper identification.
