After a long election season, voters will have to be patient


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Voters have waited months for the outcome of Tuesday's balloting - wading through an increasing amount of negative campaign ads.

Many folks have heard others say "I can't wait 'til the election is over!"  But, they will have to wait a bit for election outcomes to be announced. 

How long?

"Well that's the big question," Kalamazoo County Clerk Tim Snow tells WKZO. "I get asked that a lot."

Polls open at 7am Tuesday and do not close until 8pm. Then the process to tally the votes locally, regionally and nationally goes on, and it will likely be several hours before some races can be called.

"I'm thinking, with the volume of voters and all things that have to be done, we should start seeing results around 9:30pm," Snow said.

Of course, that simply means results will begin to shape up, but it could be a number of hours before a full count is completed in some races.
