Absentee Ballots by State

Some states don’t count substantial amounts of votes until after Election Day; others require mail-in ballots to be postmarked – not received – by Nov. 2, leaving the tally until well afterward. And with polls showing many Republican and Democratic candidates in tight contests, there’s plenty of opportunity for confusion, challenges and recounts that could delay the results and ultimately tip the balance of power on Capitol Hill.

An interactive map detailing percentages of uncounted ballots remaining on Election Day for the past three election cycles, as well as absentee ballot deadlines, has been posted.
