Because of the pandemic, many Americans turned to mail-in, absentee, and early voting for Tuesday’s election. How that could affect the final result varies by state. Election officials in several states will have already counted millions of early votes by Tuesday night. Results could come in earlier than usual in the swing states of Florida, Georgia, Iowa, North Carolina, and Ohio. Other states, including the pivotal Rust Belt states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, will accept ballots and count them for days after the election, likely delaying their final tally.
