OHIO: Getting Presidential Election Results on November 8th

The Presidential General Election is tomorrow and the Secretary of State's Election Night Reporting (ENR) system is now live for the media and public to access.

Beginning today, you may now switch any systems and databases you've tested through over to

IMPORTANT NOTE: Tomorrow evening, the Secretary of State's website, and will automatically redirect to, the Election Night Reporting webpage. The other components of the Secretary of State's website will be unavailable until very early on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 when the site has concluded receiving results in the 2016 Presidential General Election. Please plan accordingly if there is anything you would like to save from the website as it will not be accessible while election results are being reported.

Once the polls have closed on Election Night, election results will be available on our website for the following races:

  • President and Vice President of the United States
  • United States Senator from Ohio
  • Members of Congress from Ohio
  • Members of the Ohio General Assembly
  • Members of the State Board of Education
  • Justices of the Ohio Supreme Court
  • Judges of the Court of Appeals

Results for the races above will also be available via an XML feed and RSS feed. These feeds will automatically update every three minutes throughout Election Night.

Information regarding write-in candidates, including names and results, will not be available on Election Night.

No results will appear on the site until after the polls have closed at 7:30pm.
