Election Night Information 

Due to the large number of early ballots cast in most elections and the provisional ballots cast at the polls, final election results will not be available until several days after Election Day.  Election night results are not final.   After all the ballots are counted, results could be substantially different as to who is elected at the primary.

Statute prohibits the release of early voting results until all precincts have reported or one hour after the polls close, whichever occurs first.
