What Does This Mean?
Many States, and Many Races, May Not Be Called on Election Night.
Results will come earlier, though, in states that can begin counting ballots before Nov. 3. Here’s a guide to how the count might go.
Some Politicians May Claim Victory Prematurely.
But we won’t really know the outcomes until all of our votes are counted.
Candidates With Early Leads May Still Lose, and Vice Versa.
But this is normal in elections with high numbers of mail ballots.
Here’s What to Do:
As early as possible — drop off your ballot, get to the polls in person now, or vote on Election Day.
The count may take a day or even a few days, and that’s okay.
Wait for Official Results.
Major news organizations, such as the Associated Press, and election officials will share results once all votes have been counted.
