As Election Day draws near and Americans wait to find out which party will control Congress, officials are warning the results may take a while.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Monday, “In modern elections, more and more ballots are being cast in early voting and also by mail. And many states don’t start counting those ballots until after the polls close on Nov. 8.”
“We may not know all the winners of elections for a few days. It takes time to count all legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly manner. That’s how this is supposed to work,” she added.
