Donald Trump currently has a roughly 77,000 vote lead out of 5,388,000 votes counted so far, but it’s estimated that there are still roughly 200,000 mail-in ballots left to be counted, so the presidential race in our state is still too early to call.

What do you think about the election results so far?
