Election Law @ Moritz signing off
Indiana’s presidential race has only a 4,000 vote margin currently with 88% of precincts reporting. It’s too early to know how many absentee and provisional ballots remain uncounted. EL@M will be monitoring this race in the next day or two. North Carolina presidential and gubernatorial races are similarly close and we will be watching these in the next couple of days. Polling hours were extended in at least one North Carolina county. Missouri’s presidential race is very close as well and the outcome subject to change depending on the outstanding uncounted votes.
Voting in Florida seems to have gone relatively smoothly, perhaps because 49% of voters had already cast their ballots before polls opened today.
There are close senate races in Minnesota and Louisiana. Louisiana’s election in particular might experience some trouble as part of the continuing fallout from Katrina and its displaced electorate.
Check back for more updates tomorrow.
