In the US presidential election, usually, if a single candidate has a clear lead, the results are announced within a day. But this time the announcement of the results may be delayed.
In the United States, most votes are counted by machine. However, where there is a malfunction in a machine, the polling staff counts the ballot papers themselves. After polling, the results are sent to the local or regional headquarters of the election authorities.
The state of Georgia will be the first to decide the outcome of the polls after the polls close. North Carolina could follow. Then there are Ohio, Florida, Texas, and Arizona.
The state of Ohio’s result in the US presidential election has been significant, and it has been generally seen that the candidate who wins in Ohio wins the entire field.
But this time around, under extraordinary circumstances, there are fears that it could take time for results from several key states, including Ohio.
