North Carolina's boards of elections have announced it will not be updating the election results for more than a week.

Despite the importance North Carolina could play in terms of determining both the presidency and control of the U.S. Senate, the state's county election boards have announced they will not begin the process of counting the outstanding absentee and provisional ballots until November 12.

More than 95% of North Carolina's votes have been counted, but the margin between President Trump and former vice president Joe Biden stands at 1.4%, with Trump holding 50.1% of the vote and Biden holding 48.7%. Sen. Tom Tillis (48.7%) leads Democrat challenger Cal Cunningham (46.9%) by a slightly larger margin.

North Carolina's announcement was met with a significant amount of condemnation.
