Elections Officials Say Vote Counting May Be Extended

The Ohio Association of Elections Officials says if the presidential race comes down to counting the state's votes, it could be a long wait to determine a winner.

 Officials are bracing for a close finish that could be decided by thousands of provisional and absentee ballots that won't be counted until ten days after the election. A recount or lawsuits over provisional ballots would push declaration of a winner into December.
