Exactly one week removed from the 2012 General Election, Kanawha County will canvass the votes.

The number of ballots cast could make a difference in at least one race. Republican John McCuskey garnered more votes than democrat incumbents Bobbie Hatfield and Bonnie Brown in the 35th District.

McCuskey currently has 64 more votes than Hatfield and 235 more votes than Brown.

There are 1,300 provisional ballots that have not been counted, according to Kanawha County officials. Provisional ballots are not counted until the vote canvass. The difference in the 35th District race is small enough that there's a chance the addition of provisional results could change the outcome of the race.

The Kanawha County Commission will meet as the Board of Canvassers on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 7 a.m. to begin the canvass. The Canvass will be conducted at the Kanawha County Voter's Registration Office.

According to West Virginia State Code, once the canvass is completed, each county will declare the results. The election cannot be certified until 48 hours following the final county completing its canvass and declaring its results.

The Kanawha County Commission will announce the date of the certification of the election at a later time, once it is determined when all counties have completed canvass.
