A lot of action right now. 15 states - almost a third of all states - closed at 8PM. That's probably the biggest number of states that will close at the same time all night.

I know, but where did all these new EV come from? The states whose polls just closed, have they been tallying throughout the day and just submitted a bunch of results as they closed?

The networks will call sure-bet states before any official tallies come in.

But polling places do tally throughout the day (not releasing hte tallies) otherwise we'd be waiting on results until next tuesday.

I think it's based on pre-election polling, and probably exit polls, to a lesser extent.
