JUNEAU -- State election officials are still going through ballots from last week's primary election.
Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai says officials have about 4,500 absentee ballots and 2,800 questioned ballots yet to count. But she says they are still awaiting questioned ballots from some districts, and the number of absentee ballots could rise as more ballots-by-mail are received.
The ballot counting is scheduled to continue Thursday and Friday. The state has scheduled next Wednesday for a final count, if needed.
Alaska's primary was held Aug. 28.
