Alaska might be the final state to be known as, as a result of officers there received’t even start counting mail ballots, or early in-person ballots solid after Oct. 29, for an additional week.

Arizona will in all probability be known as quickly. Mr. Biden is main by 5 share factors with greater than 80 p.c of the estimated vote counted, and a few information retailers, together with The Associated Press and Fox News, have already known as it for him. The New York Times and others haven’t performed so, however Arizona officers count on to end counting ballots on Wednesday, so we shouldn’t be ready too lengthy for a solution.
Georgia might need been known as already if not for a burst pipe at a web site in Fulton County the place election officers have been counting absentee ballots, which delayed the counting course of in and round Atlanta.
Mr. Trump was forward within the state by a bit over two share factors with 92 p.c of the estimated vote counted, however the uncounted votes from such a closely Democratic space may shut the hole, and the secretary of state’s workplace cautioned towards counting on the present outcomes on condition that truth.
