Election Results Tonight
ABCNews reports that there WILL be exit polls available for Nebraska races, when the polls close at 8 p.m. CST.
And according to the OWH:
The only (official) votes that will be available at 8 p.m. CST will be from voters who submitted early ballots to their local election offices – an estimated 16 percent of the total. And that’s probably not going to be a representative sampling of the vote, according to (Secretary of State John) Gale.
Low-population counties in western Nebraska likely will finish their counting and report their totals within two hours of the polls closing (10 p.m. CST), Gale predicted.
But he said it could be 11 p.m. or later before Douglas, Sarpy, Lancaster and other big counties have tallied enough votes to declare winners.
Douglas County’s Phipps said his office would release the early voting totals at 8 p.m. CST. He said he would report precinct votes completed thus far at 9 p.m. and at 9:45 p.m., to have some results available for the 10 o’clock television news shows. After that, he plans to report hourly until the count is completed.
“Normally we’d be done by 11 p.m. or 12,” he said. “Now we’ll be done at 1 a.m. or 2.”
