AZ: Law enforcement investigating San Luis early ballots*
http://www.yumasun.com/news/investigation-61671-county-yuma.html
The Yuma Sun previously reported that of the total 2,983 ballots cast in the San Luis election, 1,477 were early ballots. Of those, 143 ballots were rejected because they had signatures that didn't match the registered voters,' said Assistant Secretary of State Jim Drake.

Drake said there was an error rate of 10 percent. When workers with the Secretary of State's office compared those numbers to other elections of similar size, rates in those cases were 1 percent or less.

CA: Riverside County election results delayed
It could take another week or two before all provisional ballots are counted, county election officials said. http://www.swrnn.com/southwest-riverside/2010-06-12/local-county-news/riverside-county-election-results-delayed As of 6 a.m. today, 194,149 votes have been counted, with about 40,000 mail-in votes and 7,445 provisional ballots still left to be tallied...

CA: Buckle up for a bumpy election*
http://www.timesheraldonline.com/ci_15275496 Technical problems marred the vote count in Solano County. Unrelated to the election, but bad timing nonetheless, was an as-yet-unresolved software problem that crashed the county's website just before eager election watchers tried to see how the contests were going.

It didn't help that the Registrar of Voters office was having trouble of its own. A high number of write-in candidates -- Daffy Duck, among them -- slowed the process, as the counting machines had to stop and spit out each write-in ballot. Then an operator error took one -- and later, a second -- of the four machines offline until the problem was resolved.

Write-ins aren't expected to be much of an issue in November, but more ballots are. For the primary, the elections department decided to save $30,000 by processing all ballots in a central location. Next fall, it might be worth the extra cost to have ballots counted at the precincts, which would ensure a quicker tally.
