Yeah, so you thought you were voting for either Clinton Or Trump, and maybe you did, but it won't cont-sorry
El Paso falls in the mountain time zone and report their polls officially at 8 PM, but the thing is, the rest of Texas is in the central time zone. Texas closes its polls and reports votes to the electoral college at 7 P.M. Central time. So sorry, El Paso. Your nearly two million possible votes won't influence this election.
The Eastern half of this state reports all its presidential poll results to the electoral college at 9PM. The problem is the whole state is required to do so then, but on the western side it's only 8 so the sparsely populated areas won't get a chance to send their votes in on time.
NORTH CAROLINA allows its County Boards of Elections to decide whether to keep polls open until 8:30 p.m.Eastern Time but, outside of the big cities they don't use this option so 7:30 will already be too late for them. Sucks not to live in the big city for some of NC.
New Hampshire allows 13 cities to report their poll results later and then sends this information to the Electoral College, but there are 234 counties in NH, and these 13 cities really don't contain all the people that live there. The rest of NH will just have to move perhaps, and this is a battle-ground state for some elections.
Poll closing time could be rather problematic in Kentucky. A large chunk of the state is on Central time. By the time this portion of the state is required to send its results in there is a small portion that doesn't get to, that means that if this data isn't reported early those voters still in line at the polls might as well go home.
Indiana poll closing times are actually based upon Kentucky's Eastern part, but the rest of Indiana not in the Eastern Time zone doesn't even get a say in Presidential elections. Thanks a lot Kentucky.
