There are still about 20,000 mail-in ballots to be counted in Georgia's Fulton County, Director of Registration and Elections Richard Barron tells CNN late Wednesday evening.
He added that the county may have to resume counting ballots at some point Thursday.
Fulton County has counted 121,683 ballots as of 11 p.m. ET, and will need several more hours to finish going through the absentee ballots, Barron said.
In a CNN television interview less than two hours ago, Barron thought his team would finalize their ballot count “sometime between” midnight and 3 a.m. ET.
Why this matters: There are 16 electoral votes at stake in Georgia. CNN is yet to project a winner in the state. Joe Biden leads the race for the presidency with 253 electoral votes. President Trump has 213 electoral votes. The candidates each need 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.
