Both parties calling voters in Washington -- the election is not over

AP reports: Democratic and Republican activists [in Washington State] spent a lot of time on the phone over the weekend, calling voters who cast provisional ballots that are in dispute.

People on each side of the governor's race are hoping that getting every last vote counted will help their candidate win.

Republican Dino Rossi has a lead of 1,920 votes over Democrat Christine Gregoire. About 42,000 ballots still have to be counted -- roughly 11,000 of them in King County.

Election results will be certified Wednesday. A recount is automatic if the margin of victory is less than 2,000 votes. -- .: Corvallis Gazette-Times :. News
