Polls are closed. Here’s where to find election results

By: - May 16, 2023 8:00 pm

Election Day polls have closed in Pennsylvania.

You can still cast your ballot if you were in line at your polling place by 8 p.m. All mail-in and absentee ballots should have been returned to your county elections office by now; it’s too late to drop them in the mail to count toward race totals.

And now, counties work to tabulate final, unofficial results.

The Pennsylvania Department of State will provide up-to-the-minute results from counties online.

Acting Secretary of State Al Schmidt, who will host a press conference detailing the election later tonight, said the resource — which can customize searches by county — will offer “the most comprehensive picture of how Pennsylvanians voted.”

Once again, state officials urge patience while election workers tabulate results, citing existing law prohibiting counties from counting mail-in and absentee ballots before 7 a.m. on Election Day.

“While we know everyone will be eager to know the results, ensuring each vote is accurately and securely counted is the top priority,” Schmidt said.
