The 2020 election is one of the most controversial elections in history. The voter turn-out for the election is projected to be the largest in over a century. Although this year voting has taken the form of mail-in ballots more than anything. Before Election Day over 90 million votes had already been cast and millions more citizens are expected to make their ways to the polls before they close. Political scientist believe that although most states ballots will be counted by the end of Election Day, some states results may take longer to receive and count. This means that the presidential results may not be released for days, or even weeks. That being said, as the results come in, the chart above will continuously be updated to reflect these results.
