The initial stage is that all the states report their results. Many people think that could take days given the volume of mail-in and early voting. But the reality is that we could know the probable outcome late on election night or Wednesday morning.

This is because many states start tabulating early votes before the election and will be able to announce those results on election night. Even in those states where counting doesn’t start until election day, most use scanning technology and so they should be able to process these ballots by Wednesday.
