As expected, election results will take longer this year. Millions of people across the US voted by mail, and mail ballots take longer to count.
In states where the Election Night returns reflect a very close contest, no victory announcement will be made until a higher percentage of ballots is counted and reported. Vote counts are never final on election night.
On election night and in the days that follow, election officials will release updated vote counts as more votes are counted. However, state laws and practices vary on when mail ballot results, early voting results, and Election Day results are released.
Provisional ballots provide a back-up option for voters whose eligibility is uncertain when they arrive at the polls. Provisional ballots help ensure all eligible voters can vote by allowing election officials to verify eligibility after the fact. Because of these additional steps, provisional ballots are counted after Election Day.
The final vote count will be officially certified by November 24, 2020.
