Six Senate races were not called in five states: Alaska, Georgia, Maine, Michigan and North Carolina.
Georgia has two races, both involving Republican incumbents that Democrats hope to overthrow. One, between Senator David Perdue and Jon Ossoff, could be decided in the next few days or could go to a second round in January, depending on whether the libertarian candidate gets enough votes to keep the two candidates from the main parties below 50%. . The other race will require a second round between the incumbent, Kelly Loeffler, and Raphael Warnock, a Democrat.
When will we know the results?
This will likely vary greatly from state to state. Let’s take them one at a time.
Alaska may well be the last state to be called in, as officials won’t even begin counting mail-in ballots or in-person ballots after Oct. 29, for an extra week. That being said, it is a red state and is not really competitive. Mr. Trump will likely win here quite easily, and Senator Dan Sullivan, a Republican, likely will too.
Arizona could be called soon. Mr Biden leads by five percentage points with more than 80% of the estimated vote counted, and some news outlets, including The Associated Press and Fox News, have already called for him. The New York Times and others haven’t, but Arizona officials expect to complete the ballot count on Wednesday, so we shouldn’t wait too long for a response.
Georgia might already have been called out if it weren’t for a pipe burst at a Fulton County site where election officials were counting missing ballots, which delayed the counting process in and around Atlanta .
Mr Trump was ahead in the state by just over two percentage points with 92% of the estimated vote counted, but the countless votes from such a heavily Democratic region could close the gap, and the secretary’s office State cautioned against relying on current results given this fact.
