A question: If these are in fact the "final results," why does it seem that not all precincts have reported. For example, results for the Division Three race say, " Completed Precincts: 15 of 20." Is that what makes them unofficial? Why call them "final"?

Can anyone explain?

Update: James Faulk attempts an explanation in a piece in Thursday's T.S.

Only one issue came up with the new gear, said [ Humboldt County Registrar of Voters Carolyn Crnich] . On some of the election tallies posted to the Web Tuesday night, it appeared as if all of the precincts hadn't reported, she said. What actually happened, she said, was that the system was listing vote-by-mail precincts as it would a normal precinct. So while those votes were counted and included in the night's totals, the results showed that some precincts had yet to report.

I guess that means there are not really 20 precincts in Dist. 3. Right?
