PHOENIX (AP) -- Election workers across Arizona are still tallying ballots as three major races remain unsettled.

The races for the 2nd Congressional District, superintendent of public instruction and a statewide ballot measure about federal government overreach remain too close to call.

Former Air Force pilot Martha McSally leads Democratic Rep. Ron Barber by just 363 votes in the congressional race.

In the education contest, Republican Diane Douglas leads Democrat David Garcia by about 2,700 votes out of more than 1.1 million counted. A ballot measure to decide whether Arizona can reject any federal action it deems unconstitutional was also close, with the two sides separated by about 31,000 votes.

The secretary of state's office says about 245,000 ballots remain uncounted statewide, along with 62,000 provisional ballots.
