Americans will likely not find out who wins the 2020 presidential race on election night, experts have predicted.

As the US struggles to get to grips with a restructured voting system more heavily reliant on mail-in voting in light of the coronavirus pandemic, many fear that underprepared states may become overwhelmed with ballots and counts could take days to complete.

“There is no chance that we will know on election night the full vote total in Michigan,” Marc Elias, an election lawyer with prominent Democratic clients, told NBC News.

“Neither Michigan nor Pennsylvania have a history of large numbers of absentee ballots being cast. And Michigan law prohibits the absentee ballots from even starting to be counted until polls are closed.”

The lengthy process of counting absentee ballots could be set to delay the announcement of the result way past election day.

“People should expect that in November there are going to be absentee ballots and mail ballots that are counted well into the evening and in the days that follow,” Mr. Elias told the broadcaster.
