Election results are updated as often as new data is received from county elections offices after the polls close at 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. Many ballots are counted after Election Day. County elections officials have approximately one month to complete their extensive tallying, auditing, and certification work. Final certified results are due to the Secretary of State for presidential electors on December 6, 2016, and all other state contests on December 9, 2016. The Secretary of State will certify the statewide results by December 16, 2016.
The Secretary of State only certifies results for state and federal contests. For local election results, go to the website of the county elections office conducting the election.
