At just before 1:00 p.m, Alaska time, the Alaska Division of Elections posted new information on the Stevens-Begich vote count.
Number counted so far today - 14,242
Votes for Mark Begich - 146,286
Votes for Ted Stevens - 143,912
Begich lead - 2,374 votes.
His lead before today, from last week's count, was just over 1,000 votes. On election night, Begich was down almost 4,000. The trend in the late count votes has been inexorably in Begich's favor.
The Ted Stevens office on Fireweed Street in Anchorage has been shut down, the signs gone. The Begich office, and the Anchorage Democrats' offices are both humming with activity.
Most of the remaining late votes to be counted today are from Southeast Alaska, where Begich has been doing surprisingly well, so far.
Ethan Berkowitz has fallen a bit further behind Don Young, in the US House AK-AL seat count.
