Election 2020

What will we know on Election Night?

It is possible the outcome of the 2020 presidential election will not be known by the end of Election Day on November 3. Depending on how many mail-in and absentee ballots need to be counted and how long a state has to count those ballots, it may take several days or longer to know results. For example, as of October 20, North Carolina is now allowed to count mail-in ballots up to nine days after the election as long as they were postmarked by 5pm on Election Day. Any legal challenges related to the results could cause further delays. Finally, it is important to remember the election is not officially decided until the Electoral College votes are counted on January 6, 2021.
