Election results start trickling in
States started processing results in the presidential race as East Coast polling places began closing on Tuesday evening. The Associated Press called Kentucky, with its eight Electoral College votes, and West Virginia with five, for President Donald Trump, while challenger Joe Biden picked up three in Vermont and 13 in Virginia. None were a surprise.
When will we get the rest of the results? While a surge in early voting means some states will likely wrap up early, like Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Ohio, others could take much longer. Some crucial states—including Pennsylvania, where both candidates focused their time leading up to Election Day—will continue to count ballots for days after the election. Unless one candidate wins in a landslide, it could take days or even weeks to get a final result.
