RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina’s elections office is predicting that at the end of Election Day it will be able to tally and report at least 97% of all ballots cast.

The N.C. State Board of Elections said in a news release Sunday that it will post results as quickly as possible but that its primary objective will be an accurate count.

There’s a good chance Americans won’t know the winner of Tuesday’s presidential election when they go to bed that night.

In North Carolina, mail-in ballots are not due until Nov. 12 if postmarked by Election Day.
