US Election 2016: 1 day to go

Trump_&_Clinton

Tomorrow is finally election day – the campaigning and the mudslinging are almost at an end! And since I last did one of these blogs, the polls have narrowed significantly…

Here I’ll take a look at the current predictions from the major pollsters, and what the latest polls say will be the result tomorrow evening, and importantly when are the results announced.

WHEN ARE THE RESULTS?

Tomorrow’s election takes place in all 50 US states and Washington DC, spanning six time zones, meaning not all the results will be announced at once.

The first polls will close in Indiana and Kentucky first at around 2300 GMT and, as these are traditionally Republican states, these will likely be declared for Trump pretty soon after polls close.

An hour later, polling stations will close in the battleground states of Florida and Virginia, as well as South Carolina, Georgia and Vermont, followed by Ohio and North Carolina at 0030 GMT. State projections for these will be based on exit polls, but close states are often labelled ‘too close to call’ until more votes are counted.

0100 GMT sees 19 declarations, with Pennsylvania and Michigan being key target states for Trump and vital to Clinton’s ‘electoral firewall’.

Colorado follows at 0200 GMT, with Iowa and Nevada closing their polls at 0300 GMT – all important states for both candidates. Also at 0300, Utah will conclude voting, which could see a third-party candidate Evan McMullin win.

The final result could be known at 0400 GMT at the earliest, as the west coast states’ polls close. However, if it is a close race, you could be in for a long night!
