After Election Day, updated results will be released each day. However not all counties may count ballots, but if; an update will be given.
Provisional ballots will start to be counted on the second Thursday after the election.
Ballots were sent to voters in late September. They will continue to be sent to voters through the U.S. Mail. Applications for mail-in ballots must be received by Oct. 20.
