Traditionally, not too many votes stream in past Tuesday. But with COVID-19 and more people voting via mail, hundreds could have streamed in each day until the Thursday deadline, Carver County Elections Supervisor Kendra Olson said.

Just under 10,000 absentee ballots were issued for the primary, whether turned in via mail or early at the counter, Olson said. About 4,000 of those were still yet to be sent in as of voting day.

"You just have to kind of take it one issue, one decision, one adjustment at a time," Olson said of the voting process amid COVID. 

The county canvassing board will finalize votes Friday.
