Election 2020 Coverage

Be patient. Election results may take a while.

Results of the Nov. 3 election in Pennsylvania, and across the country, likely won’t be known for days. The counting of ballots continues after election night most years. This year’s expected surge in mailed ballots means election offices will need extra time to tally all the votes.

As that occurs, some candidates may call for the counting to end and for themselves to be declared the winner. However, winners will be decided when all the votes are counted — that’s the American election system at work.

WITF’s journalists will cover that process, and WITF will rely on The Associated Press to call races for the winner based on the AP’s rigorous, time-tested method.

Smart Talk Candidate Interviews

WITF’s Smart Talk is featuring interviews with candidates running for both statewide and national offices. These conversations are intended to focus on the issues. All candidates who appear on the ballot in the WITF listening area and who have opponents were invited to be on the program.
