o claim the Presidency of the United States, a candidate must win two hundred and seventy votes in the Electoral College. The New Yorker will be tracking the results above as part of our comprehensive Election 2020 coverage. This year, with the coronavirus pandemic changing voting conditions across the country, there is a strong likelihood that neither President Donald Trump nor his challenger, the former Vice-President Joseph Biden, will be declared the winner on Election Night. A number of states have allowed voters, many of whom may be reluctant to visit polling places in person, to mail in their ballots or to vote early. The deadlines for ballot delivery vary by state, as do the rules that determine when election officials can begin to count the votes. The expectation is that, in many states, counting will continue well after November 3rd.
In Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which Trump narrowly won in 2016, election officials begin counting mail-in ballots on Election Day. Michigan, which Trump won in 2016 by fewer than eleven thousand votes, the slimmest margin of any state, starts processing votes a day earlier. Pennsylvania, Ohio, and North Carolina, all of which are expected to be close, have set individual deadlines that allow mail-in ballots to arrive after November 3rd; Ohio will accept ballots until November 13th, ten days after the election. If early returns in some of these states overwhelmingly favor one of the candidates, it’s possible that a winner could be projected on or soon after Election Day.
A few key states are expected to report results much more quickly. Florida, where early voting began on September 24th, is perhaps the most significant. Election officials there have been processing ballots from the start of early voting—which, most observers believe, will allow the state to report a final result on Election Night. Arizona, which has been processing mail-in and early-voting ballots since October 7th, is another swing state expected to declare a winner on November 3rd. You can see the latest election returns by the state on our election map, which will continue to update until the last vote is tallied.
