Virginia is delaying the release of its election results until 8 p.m. at the earliest because so many people are still in line waiting to vote.
Polls in Virginia closed at 7 p.m., but those still in line at the time are still allowed to vote.
The Virginia State Board of Elections said in a news release Tuesday after the polls closed that it wanted to ensure voters aren't unduly influenced by preliminary results.
The release says the board consulted with officials from the Republican and Democratic parties on the move.
