There may be hours – or days – before it’s enough votes are counted In Arizona and Nevada to determine who has won the Senate races and the director of jurisdiction in both states. In addition, there are many important congressional races no-names in California and Colorado will decide what the house looks like when the new Congress takes place in January.

The unofficial results – and lingering uncertainty over who will control Congress next year – have not stopped Republican apprehensions about the election results, where a wave of GOPs is expected. will never come true. The results raised new questions about GOP Leader Kevin McCarthypath to voiceover rights and add a new layer to the potential 2024 feud between former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

This is What should you know? while continuing to count:

Why does it take so long to count votes in important states? The biggest reason it took so long was how each state handled ballots outside of those voted at polling stations on Election Day, including early voting and ballots by mail.

In ArizonaFor example, CNN estimates there are about 540,000 ballots counted. The majority of that, about 350,000 ballots, was in Maricopa County, the state’s most populous county that includes Phoenix.

Of those ballots, about 290,000 were delivered to vote centers on Election Day. A top official told CNN late Thursday that the county is expected to begin releasing the first results from those ballots by Friday night.

“We’re going to start seeing those things tomorrow — we’re going to start seeing those things,” said Bill Gates, Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.

Those ballots must be processed before they can be counted, resulting in delayed tabulation time. The dropped mail ballots were “a record” for the county, Gates said.

Mail-in ballots in Nevada are still arriving: In Nevada, state law allows ballots to be mailed through Saturday, as long as they are postmarked by Election Day, which means counties still receive ballots to count.

As of Thursday night, CNN’s Decision Division estimated about 95,000 votes were still left over.

In Clark County, the state’s largest county that includes Las Vegas, more than 50,000 ballots are still counted, Clark County registrar Joe Gloria said Thursday.

Trump and DeSantis: The lackluster performance of some Trump-backed candidates in battleground states has raised new doubts about Trump’s ability to launch his 2024 campaign, scheduled at an event scheduled for Tuesday. Tuesday.

At the same time, DeSantis’ resounding re-election victory in Florida is fueling calls for he uses his motivation and challenge Trump for the 2024 nomination.

After the “red wave” was washed away, McCarthy faced a more difficult path: McCarthy is moving quickly to lock in the votes needed to assert the speaker’s attention in the next Congress, as Republicans appear to still have a majority in the House even after Democrats have a night out. better than expected on Tuesday. CNN has yet to predict a Republican takeover of the room.

McCarthy spoke privately with his closest advisers and confidants in a phone call Wednesday morning. The California Republican has tapped a group of members of his whip team that will help him secure the votes to win speaker rights in January, with GOP lawmakers on the call promising to “work work hard to get him elected,” according to a source close to the matter.
