Vote counting likely to last into wee hours

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Montgomery County officials hope to have most of the votes cast Tuesday counted between 11 p.m. and midnight.

The county Board of Elections outlined its plans to reporters in a news conference Tuesday. Once the electronic votes are tallied, they plan to move on to paper ballots.

If all goes according to plan, the board hopes to publish unofficial totals between 1 and 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Provisional ballots are an all together different story. By law, those ballots cannot be counted until Nov. 17.

Estimated Schedule

 7:45p.m. - First returns of absentee ballots and early tabulations 11 p.m. - 12 a.m. - Most of the votes counted 12:01 a.m. - Paper ballots will be counted 1 - 2 a.m. - Unofficial Vote totals
