Besides write-ins, there's also 30,500 absentee ballots
to be counted. Miller only needs to get 13,439 out of the 30,500 to make his vote count exceed the number of write-ins, and this win the race.

yes, but they’ve counted about 12,500 so far and he got 1200, right?

You assuming that the cow doesn't get any of the remaining 16,061 votes that didn't vote for Miller. As much as I do not want to admit it, this race is over.

Update, 4:07 p.m.:
There’s a new batch of statewide numbers. The state now reports having counted over 14,000 absentee and early ballots today.
Miller has gained a little bit of ground since the last absentee count. He now has 12,218 fewer votes than the write-in ballots.
That means he’s picked up 1,221 votes so far in today’s count.
There should be around 8,000 more absentees left to count today if the Division of Elections sticks to its original plan of counting about 22,000 of the absentee/early votes by the end of the day.
There were a total of more than 30,000 of such ballots received by the state. More absentee counts will be held next week.
