  • Results might not be known in key races tonight: Results for key races might not be known for hours, perhaps days, as some states have different procedures for when they tabulate mail-in votes.
  • Some voting locations to be open later: Isolated polls in several states, including Georgia Pennsylvania and North Carolina, will allow voters to cast their ballots later than planned following unexpected delays.
  • No major voting problems: Election watchdogs reported routine issues in key battleground states Tuesday but no major problems as ballots were cast across the country. U.S. cyber security officials say they are on guard but all has been smooth so far.
