Maybe this will save everyone from checking the vote count every 15 seconds

GEORGIA
10:30 a.m. ET: Georgia's Secretary of State will hold a news conference. There's currently a 19,000-vote margin between Trump and Biden, and there are around 50,000 votes remaining to be counted (as of 9am). Trump

NEVADA
Noon ET: Clark County, Nevada, which includes Las Vegas, will give an update. The country has the largest share of votes in Nevada, and was silent on updates yesterday. Across Nevada, Biden holds a slim 8,000 vote lead.

ARIZONA
9 p.m. ET: Officials in Arizona's Maricopa County — the biggest county in Arizona, which in the Phoenix area — plan to give their next update. The county tweeted overnight that 275,000 ballots remain. Biden has about a 70,000 vote lead

PENNSYLVANIA
No announced time -- As of 9pm last night, The state as a whole has 763,311 mail-in ballots to be counted, according to the Secretary of State’s dashboard website. The bulk of the still to be counted ballots are in urban areas, particularly Philadelphia. Trump holds a 165,000 vote lead


This link should take you to a county by county chart showing how many ballots remain to be counted. the Philadelphia area has nearly 200,000 to go.

I think they were all secretly hoping that their states vote wasn't going to matter and they could take their time. Unfortunately, since all of them had the same plan, it didn't work.

You would think all of this would prompt them to ask, “Huh. I wonder if there’s a better way to count votes?”

Thanks, Ombligo - very helpful.

Still a little nervous about Arizona; last night one batch of votes from Maricopa went 60-40 Trump. However, if the rest also went 60-40 (which is somewhat unlikely - overall, Maricopa to date has favored Biden), that still wouldn’t be enough for Trump to catch up. And supposedly Pima county (which contains Tucson) still has a good chunk of votes out and is said to be considerably bluer than Maricopa.

I’d like to believe that the answer of who won nationally will be answered by tonight, but I’m not holding my breath.

Nate Silver on Georgia’s SoS news conference this AM:

Quote

The state of Georgia has released estimates about where outstanding absentee ballots remain to be counted. There’s good news for Biden here: They’re mostly in blue counties.

... Considering that, on top of that, absentee ballots are likely to be considerably bluer than how the counties vote overall, catching up in Georgia looks achievable for Biden.

Also,

One thing to consider when evaluating how the polls did this year is that some states may have a lot of provisional ballots. Those could be especially Democratic in states where the provisionals consist mostly of people who intended to vote by mail but decided to vote in-person instead because of concerns about whether their ballots would be counted on time. Nate Cohn over at The New York Times estimates that provisionals alone could shift the results by 2 points toward Biden in Pennsylvania, for instance, once they’re counted.

If Nevada announces enough data to declare Biden their winner, then things should get interesting. Both FOX and AP have declared Biden the winner of AZ on election night (but NY Times and others have not), so unless they rescind that they should declare Biden the winner of the presidential election.

On election night Trumps team went apeshit when FOX declared AZ, with Jarad calling Rupert Murdoch trying to get it changed. So FOX viewers might be the first to hear Biden declared winner of the presidential race. Will 45 Tweet about FOX being fake news and the NY Times as being a reliable source?

AP is the gold standard (PBS and NPR won't report from any other source) and they currently have Biden 6 EC votes away -- Nevada has 6 votes. NYT/Sienna did themselves no favor releasing a final poll showing Wisconsin +17 for Biden last weekend.

It's going to be a long cold winter for pollsters.
