Welcome to the NPR Elections Big Board. This board shows the same results that hosts and election staff are watching in NPR's Studio 4A. The board updates every 15 seconds.
The President board displays the total electoral votes projected for each candidate in the top gray bar, along with how many more votes are necessary to get to 270 -- the number needed to win the election. The eight states listed in two columns at the top, below the gray bar, are those NPR has identified as swing states. Under the swing states, all state results are listed in order of poll closing time.
Each sample row below is followed by a paragraph of how that row might be read based on the visual markers included.
Forty-five percent of precincts are reporting in Delaware, where Thomas Carper, the Democratic incumbent, currently has 47 percent of the vote. Kevin Wade, the Republican challenger, has 38 percent of the vote.
At 11:11 p.m., NPR projects that Republican Candidate B will win in California’s 27th Congressional District. The House seat was formerly held by the Democrats. Candidate B has received 55 percent of the vote, while Candidate A has gotten 45 percent.
At 5:20 p.m., California was called for the Democratic presidential candidate. The Democrat received 52 percent of the vote in California, while the Republican received 48 percent. California has 55 electoral votes.
