US election 2020: When will we get a result for the US election?

All this change and confusion mean that legal disputes are all but inevitable. More than 190 election lawsuits have already been filed in 2020, contesting everything from identification requirements for postal voting to the legality of Covid-related changes to primary voting dates. It is anyone’s guess what legal challenges could emerge that delay voting beforehand or reporting a definitive result afterwards. But 2020 is shaping up to be the most litigious election in US history, according to Richard Hasen, a legal scholar at the University of California Irvine.
