DAVENPORT, Iowa - Six machines, 21 people, 45,267 ballots – and one very long day.

If you voted early or by absentee ballot in Scott County, your vote is being counted Monday starting at 6 AM. 

Scott County Auditor & Commissioner of Elections Roxanna Moritz says roughly "half the election" here will be counted the day before Election Day, amounting to some 45,267 ballots that were cast either at an early voting location or by absentee.

On Monday the ballots will be fed into one of six tabulator machines.  The results will be tallied by Monday night, but Moritz says no one will know those numbers until Tuesday morning.

Moritz says around 3,862 requested absentee ballots are still outstanding.  To be counted they must be postmarked by Monday, November 5th and received by November 13th.

UPDATE:  As of Monday morning, of the 45,267 early/absentee ballots to be counted in Scott County:  18,383 are from registered Democrats; 12,465 are from registered Republicans; 14,394 are from those not declaring a political party.
