52. This is the second OP you have done implying that California does not count provisional ballots

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=2214490

I know this may be hard to believe but CALIFORNIA COUNTS ALL THEIR BALLOTS, including provisional

ones, regardless of the margin.

I am really getting tired of these implications about my state.

For anyone who cares to see what the current vote is all they have to do is go to the SOS site to see the most current numbers:

http://vote.sos.ca.gov/returns/president/party/democratic/

California counts all its ballots, including provisional ones:

Q: Are vote-by-mail and provisional ballots always counted – even in "landslide" elections?

A: Yes, every valid ballot returned to county elections officials by 8:00 p.m. on election day is counted in every election, regardless of the ballot type or the margin in any particular contest.

http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/ballot-status/

The provisional ballots would be counted regardless if a candidate concedes or not. I don't know how other states do it, but this is how California does it.

Nothing is being hidden from the public. July 9 are when the final results will be completed:

"Provisional Ballots

In California, provisional ballots serve as a fail-safe method of ensuring all voters who show up to the polls can cast a ballot.

All provisional ballots are carefully checked by county elections officials to confirm that the person who voted provisionally is both registered and that they did not cast a ballot by mail or at another polling location on Election Day."
