US Election Results: When Will We Know Who Wins?
Here’s everything you need to know.
Trump or Clinton? We are on the edge of our seats.
It’s nearly time for the season finale of America, AKA the US election results. But when we will we know who wins?
There are a few likely scenarios. Let’s break them down.
If it’s a landslide
If one candidate is very obviously dominating all the key swing states, we could predict a winner by 1:30PM AEDT. However, this would not become official until the less competitive western states determine their results later in the afternoon
If it’s not too close
Polls close in most of the western states after 3pm AEDT so it’s possible a winner could be declared shortly after this time.
If it’s pretty close
Things could get messy if the votes are close. Back in 2000, the election between George W. Bush and Al Gore was not decided until a month after the polling day. Eeeek.
