When Will States Finish Counting Presidential Votes?

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Votes cast in the 2020 presidential election might not be fully counted until later this week. The Supreme Court and state courts handed down multiple rulings last week in regards to ballot deadlines; SCOTUS set extended deadlines for vote-counting in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, while a Minnesota state court decided that votes had to be tallied by Tuesday. President Donald Trump previously called for all ballots to be counted by Tuesday, and said early Wednesday that "as far as I'm concerned, we've already won," despite the winner not yet being clear; a campaign lawyer for Joe Biden made a similarly premature claim about the former vice president Wednesday. Coverage from many left- and center-rated sources focused on Trump's premature declaration of victory, and criticized his purported attempts to undermine the vote counting process by suggesting widespread fraud. Reports from right-rated sources are generally focused on examining why counts are taking longer than usual; which candidate the extended counts may favor; and how, if at all, the extended deadlines could be linked to voter fraud.
