Nevada Secretary of States Barbara K. Cegavske released a press statement Wednesday afternoon which gave updates about the state’s tally count and frequently asked questions.
In it, the official acknowledged the wait time for learning the results of Nevada, but said ballots were being counted “at the expected pace.”
Possibly referencing President Trump’s claim the night before that some states had stopped counting, she said ballot counting has not stopped, and in fact all in-person early votes, all in-person Election Day votes, and most of the mail ballots received before Election Day have been counted.
The votes in Nevada that remain to be counted, according to the release, are mail ballots received on or after Election Day as well as ballots from same-day registration voters.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has captured Vermont’s three electoral votes, according to The Associated Press.
Polls are closing in Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina, Virginia and Vermont. Some areas, such as western Florida, still have polls open due to the time zone they’re in. Georgia also has some exceptions.
The first polls close at 6 p.m. Eastern time in swaths of Indiana and Kentucky, followed by a steady stream of poll closings every 30 minutes to an hour throughout the evening. The last polls in Alaska shut down at 1 a.m. Eastern time on Wednesday.
Voters already have braved long lines and the threat of the coronavirus to cast ballots as they chose between two starkly different visions of America for the next four years. It’s already elicited a record-setting early vote and legal skirmishing over how it will be counted.
