First results tonight are expected to be posted by approximately 7:30 p.m. and will show the advance ballots cast in this election. Advance ballots include all advance mail ballots received by 7 p.m. on election day, all advance in person ballots cast at the advance voting locations, as well as all Federal Service ballots that have been returned.

Election officials expect unofficial final results to be posted by 8:30 p.m. tonight.  Update times will be dependent upon lines at the closing of elections.

If for any reason there is a delay that would keep us from having final results posted by 10 p.m., we will post an interim update.  Interim updates are directional at best, where final results are most important, and interim updates require us to completely stop the uploading process, adding time toward completion of final results.
