Unofficial election results for state and federal races will be posted on www.GoVoteTN.com after the polls close Thursday night. However, due to the length of the ballot, county election officials may be reporting those results more slowly than usual.
"We rely on county election officials to send the results to our office as quickly as possible and they do a great job in reporting the numbers to us," Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins said. "The long ballot requires more time to close a precinct. Furthermore, counties entering the results into the state database will require a tremendous amount of data entry. We don't want election officials to sacrifice accuracy for the sake of speed. We know election officials in all 95 counties are going to do the best they can. We appreciate everyone's patience as the process works on election night."
