Ohio Recount Update: 12 Counties Remaining

The Akron Beacon Journal notes that another handful of counties have completed their recount.
With 76 of Ohio's 88 counties reporting final recounts to The Associated Press as of Monday, including the large urban counties of Cuyahoga, Hamilton and Franklin, Bush had gained 425 votes and Kerry has gained 570 votes.
Kerry has netted an additional 145 votes across the 76 counties that have completed their recount effort.

It should only be a couple more days before Kerry is mathematically eliminated - meaning the number of registered voters in the remaining counties is less than Bush's margin of victory.
